Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Johnkennedy Uzoma,Ow­erri

Leader of the All Pro­gres­sives Grand Al­liance (APGA) in Imo State, Chief Martin Ag­baso, has con­firmed that four per­sons have in­di­cated in­ter­est in vy­ing for the gov­er­nor­ship ticket of the party ahead 2015.

He ad­vised all as­pi­rants within the party to avoid the use of black­mail in the course of reach­ing out to people say­ing, that will not be in the in­ter­est of the party.

Ad­dress­ing party mem­bers yes­ter­day at the first stake­hold­ers meet­ing in Ow­erri, the one­time gov­er­nor­ship can­di­date of the party, said it is ob­vi­ous that more people would join the race for the party’s gov­er­nor­ship ticket.

He in­formed as­pi­rants that the time for them to be­gin their sen­si­ti­sa­tion tour and con­sul­ta­tions with people of var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ties and lo­cal govern­ment ar­eas has come.

Ag­baso re­minded the mem­bers that the task fac­ing all mem­bers of the party is not only to make sure the party oc­cu­pies the Imo Govern­ment House come 2015, but to win all the se­na­to­rial, House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives and 24 seats in the Imo State House of As­sem­bly.

In his ad­dress, the state chair­man of the party, Barr. Chudi Onuzo re­called what he called the ‘shame­ful be­trayal of the party” by Gover­nor Rochas Oko­rocha who he said aban­doned the party to APC and his sub­se­quent dec­la­ra­tion that the party that brought him to power is dead.

The chair­man whose ad­dress was read by Mr. Tony Mg­beahurike, the pub­lic­ity sec­re­tary of the party, said that it was based on that premise that the care­taker com­mit­tee was in­au­gu­rated with the man­date to res­ur­rect the party.
