By Tony Okafor, Awka


Chief Ifeatu Obi-Okoye, a former National Publicity Secretary, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), says he is vying for the chairmanship position to confront 2025 political battle in Anambra State.

Obi-Okoye stated this at a news conference on Wednesday in Awka, the Anambra State capital,to announce his interest ahead of the party’s state congresses.

Obi-Okoye, a lawyer, said he had the passion, capacity, qualifications, innovation and experience to recover all that was lost during the previous elections and take APGA to the next level.

He said, “Our party APGA needs an experienced and passionate politician to confront the issues in 2025 because there will be a big political battle.

” In 2025, APGA will be contesting with political parties such as Labour Party (LP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“When LP finishes from the Supreme Court their next ambition will be to capture Anambra. I also believe APC will become stronger with Sen. Ahmed Tinubu, the President-elect.

“This informed my interest in the race because we must have a chairman who understands the battle front and has the capacity to plot and confront these issue, ” he said.

Obi-Okoye said he understood and was ready to complement the positive disruptive vision of Governor Chukwuma Soludo, who is the National leader of the party, to promote public service delivery.

He also said he would ensure the restoration of the party’s strengthen at the National and State Assemblies as well as make the political party the largest in the country.

He added,”At the National Assembly, our strength dropped from five to four while at the state Assembly, it dropped from 24 to 16, though we are the majority but it was not palatable for us.

“Under my watch, I will ensure that we recover all that we have lost, build strength and capacity as well as find alternative means of funding to make the party the largest in the country rather than the third, “he said.

Obi-Okoye recommended the formation of a truth and reconciliation committee to address the internal grievances plaguing the smooth running and unity of the party to finding lasting peace.

“What we have done wrong in the past was not to have set up this committee soon after the primaries and this has created a lot of cracks in the party.

“In politics, you have winners and losers, such committee would create hope for those who did not win at the primaries. Crisis start if you do not create hope for losers. for APGA Chairmanship to battle LP, APC in Anambra-Obi-Okoye
