While discussing the topic, APGA and good governance, Chief Umeh enumerated some of the achievements of APGA government in Anambra with regards to education, infrastructural development, security, welfare of citizens, among others.
He viewed the November sixth election as a determinant factor, as it concerns the future of Anambra State, calling on Ndi Anambra to be focused and ensure that they make informed decision, with the interest of the State at heart.
