The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has appointed the Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, as its National Leader and Chairman, Board of Trustees (BOT) to replace the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
The NWC made the appointment during the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party which held on Saturday in Awka, the state capital.
APGA National Chairman, Victor Umeh, had in early December 2013 read a communiqué after the NWC meeting, stating that the choice of Obi was due to his contributions towards keeping the party alive in the past 11 years and for particularly ensuring that an APGA member succeeds him on March 17, 2014 when his tenure ends.
According to the APGA National Chairman, “the National Working Committee noted the great contributions made by His Excellency Mr. Peter Obi (CON) towards keeping the party alive in the past 11 years of his membership of our great party and particularly for ensuring that an APGA governor will succeed him on 17th March 2014, a promise made and faithfully kept.
“Obi’s recommendation to step into Ojukwu’s shoes as the National Leader and Chairman of the BOT is based on his performance, financial discipline, and commitment to APGA in the past 11 years. He never contemplated leaving the party, his sterling performance led to the superlative performance we recorded in the Anambra governorship election, which also led to the landmark victory APGA recorded in the Anambra elections”, he added.
Also appointed were 25 members of the Board of Trustees with Peter Obi as the chairman.
