The member representing Nnewi South I State Constituency in the Anambra State House of Assembly, Hon. Sonny Ozobialu, recently at Ekwulumili, the country home of Chief Barr Ugochukwu Ewelaku, charged the members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, of Ekwulumili Ward, to remain loyal and steadfast in upholding the ideology of the party
According to the lawmaker, the ideal of the party was hinged on the tripod of peace, progress and being one’s brother’s and sister’s keeper.
Hon Ozobialu who was speaking at a special gathering of the stakeholders and the party faithful in Ekwulumili Ward which was convened by Chief Barr Ugochukwu Ewelaku, stated that APGA, as a political party, had over the years served as the vehicle that drove the development, peace, progress, human capacity building and youth inclusiveness in governance, as well as the security of life and property of Ndi Anambra.
He charged the party members to keep supporting the Willie Obiano-led APGA government in the state, which, he said, had been extremely committed to the course of positively changing the narratives about Anambra State in all ramifications.
He charged every member of the party to sit up as the race to who occupied the Agu Awka governor’s seat after Chief Willie Obiano gathered momentum.
The legislator used the opportunity to intimate the members of his immediate constituency of his stewardship in the state house of assembly for the past one year and six months.
Earlier, the convener of the gathering, Chief Barr Ugochukwu Ewelaku, maintained that politics was local, saying that the gathering for the members of the party in his ward was for a short interactive exercise on issues bothering on the welfare of the party as well as the upcoming gubernatorial election in the state.
Chief Barr Ugochukwu Ewelaku who is a former President-General of Ekwulumili Development Union, used the opportunity to inform the party members about Prof. Charles Soludo, whom, he said, was in the race to consolidate on the achievement of the present administration and take Anambra State to the next level.
Other stakeholders of the party in Ekwulumili Ward who spoke at length, among other things, commended Chief Ewelaku for convening the gathering and showered encomiums on Hon. Sonny Ozobialu for championing the cause of quality representation.
