Failure, it is said, repels, while success attracts.
This notion has been playing out in the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, since Professor Chukwuma Soludo emerged victorious in the November sixth Anambra governorship election.
Queen Anigbogu reports that
this was the mood of APGA faithful as they received a London-based Nteje indigene, Chief Patrick Chinwuba into its fold again.
The event held at Nteje, Oyi Local Government Area, attracted APGA stakeholders from within and outside the locality.
Speaking at the event, the State Commissioner for Trade and Commerce, Honourable Uchenna Okafor said they wholeheartedly received Chief Chinwuba into APGA, and advised men of influence from Nteje to join the party to enable the community get more share of democracy dividends.
He also encouraged those who decamped from APGA and those interested in joining the party to feel free to do so, saying that APGA is need of more people.
While receiving Chief Chinwuba officially back to the party, the State Secretary of APGA, Chief Tony Ifeanya said the party is the right platform through which Ndigbo will achieve the Igbo agenda in Nigeria.
Also speaking, the Oyi Local Government Chairmen of APGA, Honourable Onochie Mkpuechina explained that Professor Soludo’s victory is God’s answer to prayers of Ndi Anambra, and recalled the various contributions of Chief Chinwuba to APGA before now.
Responding, Chief Chinwuba pointed out that the event was for him to reaffirm his commitment and support to APGA, adding that his decision to come back to the party was not because of money, but for the development of Anambra State, urging APGA officials not to feel threatened by the people who will be joining APGA in future.
