The National Executive Committee of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, on Friday, appointed the Anambra State Governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, as the party’s national leader.
Members of the party’s NEC unanimously appointed the governor as APGA’s national leader during its meeting held at the International Convention Centre in Awka, Anambra State.
This is according to a press statement titled, ‘Soludo takes charge, appointed national leader of APGA by the National Executive Committee of the Party’, released on Friday.
The statement added that a certificate of appointment was presented to Soludo by the national chairman of the Party, Victor Oye, in the presence of all the NEC members after his appointment.
Receiving the certificate, Soludo said he felt the weight of his forebears with the appointment, adding that he was honoured to be the third leader of the party, after the late Biafra leader, Chukwuemeka Ojukwu, and his (Soludo’s) predecessor, Willie Obiano, as the first and the second respectively.
“This has humbled me! I’m feeling the weight of history right now. The APGA is a coalition of all progressives. I feel the weight of our forebearers and those who have sacrificed their lives to ensure the survival of this great party.
