Abagana, Jan. 10, 2018 -- Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra says victory of APGA at the Anambra State governorship election has been a propelling force in re-uniting Igbos across the country.

Addressing a campaign rally for the Anambra Central Senatorial election, at Abagana, he pointed out that unity would help to attract more development projects, not only to Anambra but across states in the South East.

``This is the time Igbos will come together to speak with one voice. APGA is the only Igbo party with national outlook. 

``Victor Umeh is a credible candidate for Senate. He is the voice of the voiceless. He will defend the Igbos and protect their rights.

 ``Let us come out en masse to vote APGA on Saturday, Jan. 13, to further consolidate on the works we are doing,’’ Obiano said. 

He commended the people for their massive support in the last governorship election, promising to sustain the tempo of development and wealth creation in the state. 

The Deputy Gov, Dr Nkem Okeke re-assured that the People of Njikoka would always offer massive support to APGA government, to emerge victorious on Jan. 13, re-run election. 

The member representing Njikoka two in the Anambra State House of Assembly, Mr Pit Ibida, member representing Njikoka Dunukofia and Anaocha at the Federal House of Representatives --described Victor Umeh as ``a courageous leader who stands for the truth, especially in a difficult moment’’.

Others who acknowledged him, include Mr Dozie Nwankwo and a former Nigerian Ambassador to Spain, Lady Bianca Ojukwu

Meanwhile, the APGA candidate for Senatorial re-run, Umeh has expressed bitterness at the marginalisation of Ndigbo in the country.

Umeh, who reassured of his readiness for the election, said APGA win in the seven local governments in the area.

He noted that the election that would produce him as the first APGA Senator would expand the frontiers by helping the party in capturing other states, especially in the Northern zone.
