The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) has made categorically clear that Governor peter Obi of Anambra State has shown adequate commitment towards massive infrastructural development in the state to warrant a second tenure ticket for the 2010 gubernatorial election in the state.
APGA NWC however stated that such ticket is not yet automatic as there is still room for other party members who are interested in the guber election to declared their interest for a level playing ground.
The NWC, led by the National Secretary of the Party, Alhaji Sani Shinkafi, who were in the State to inspect the projects being handled by Obi's administration, said apart from the giant strides already recorded in terms of development programmes, Obi has faithfully implemented the manifestoes of the Party.
He therefore called on the people of the State to rally round the governor to ensure that the State continues to receive its share of the dividends of democracy which he said Obi has continued to achieve through his projects of reality that has made the party leadership to endorse him for another round of service to the State.
Shinkafi maintained that given the performance of the incumbent Governor, through his Anambra State Integrated Development Strategy (ANIDS), the party will not hesitate to give him the necessary assistance to continue with what he is doing in the State, disclosing that from what they have seen so far, Obi has done the party proud and the party would not drag their feet in giving him ticket to fly the party's flag in 2010 if he wants to go for a second term.
Shinkafi further stated that the leadership of APGA is not in dispute, stressing that “the Courts of competent jurisdictions have at least on two occasions declared the expulsion of Chief Chekwas Okorie legal” and therefore, declared Chief Victor Umeh the authentic National Chairman of our great Party"
