…Describes Self as Face of APGA
By Chioma Ndife
The presidential candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Professor Peter Umeadi, has said that the involvement of personal interests in governance is the bane of Nigerian nation.
Professor Umeadi stated this during a thank you visit to the Association of Past Presidents General in Anambra State, APPAS, held at Star Gate Hotel, Awka.
The APGA presidential candidate, who was accompanied to the visit by his team, said that APPAS was the first grassroots group to endorse his presidential ambition which was why he came to appreciate them for the gesture.
On tackling Nigeria’s challenges of corruption and insecurity, Professor Umeadi said the triple banners of rule of law, separation of powers and due process, must be employed for good governance to be realized.
The presidential candidate, who described himself as the face of APGA in Nigeria, recalled how the political party started its political journey in Nigeria, adding that APGA was the identity through which the South East would actualize its desire for Nigeria’s presidency.
Earlier in his remarks, the National President of APPAS, Chief Omeife I. Omeife, while welcoming the APGA presidential candidate, recounted the efforts of the Association in convincing him to vie for Nigeria’s presidency.
He promised that the South East group of APPAS would put into consideration the request of the APGA presidential candidate.
Contributing, the past president-general of Umunze, Brother Chris Amah, affirmed that it was the turn of the South East to produce the President of Nigeria, noting that Professor Umeadi of APGA had paid his dues in Anambra State as one time Chief judge of the state, calling for concerted efforts to achieve the vision of Ndigbo.
