The National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Chief Victor Umeh, has said the party lost nothing over the defection of former Anambra State Governor, Mr. Peter Obi, to the Peoples Democratic Party.
Speaking to journalists at a rally in Asaba on Wednesday where Dr. Anthony Azuya, a House of Representatives candidate, led defectors from the All Progressives Congress and the Labour Party to APGA, Umeh said as Obi left the party, more people were joining the party.
“You can see that as Obi left the party yesterday, about 7,000 people have joined the party today. It is like a church. As some people are leaving, many more people are coming in.
“If there is any problem (with the party), people will not be trooping to APGA. We are happy that Obi left,” he said.
The APGA National Chairman however said APGA was unwavering in its support for the candidacy of President Goodluck Jonathan in next year’s election.
“Apart from the presidential election, APGA will field candidates in all the elections in 2015,” Umeh said.
He warned Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan and the Delta State Independent Electoral Commission to allow the people’s votes count in the October 25 local government election in the state.
Azuya, who is the candidate of APGA for Oshimili/Aniocha Federal Constituency in the 2015 House of Reps election, said the APGA project in Delta State was to change lives, inspire and motivate youths to make them employable. He promised not to fail the people if they support his candidacy
