“When I look at you all, I’m looking at a team. We must forge together to begin the journey to get this country to work.
“It is time for true progressives to come together to move this party forward ” Governor Soludo stated
“As flag bearers of this party, you must understand APGA is more than a political party. It is a movement that I believe in.”
“My purpose at this moment is to fix our land. I started on the International scene in Abuja and now, I am in Awka. I am on a journey toward retirement.
“Our individualism is our greatest strength but also our greatest weakness. We want to succeed alone but we forget about the collective power on which our founding fathers thrived.
“APGA is the address of Ndigbo. We need to organize ourselves and bargain for others.

“There are governing alliances and where these votes are! We must organize and bargain in a more severe manner for people to take us seriously.
“There are basic infrastructures that give you electoral victory. You look at the demographics of those voters, and what drives them to vote.
“I hope and believe that after the election post-march, Ndigbo will start having serious conversations.
“Alliance is the politics played in the first and second republic.
“I feel very passionate because I am talking to members of my family. We must turn our anger positively and have a long-term view of this matter.
“Our people must go back to the drawing board. Zik and his team understood our society and we must instill the new Zikism.
“We have lots of work. I must encourage you strongly that we must work and understand the power of organization.
“We must change the system to become an economic powerhouse and nations will find and come to us,” Governor Soludo concluded.
Prof Oddo, while speaking earlier said, he has been anticipating this kind of opportunity to meet with the Governor. He further said the motto of the party is hinged on Onye aghana nwanne ya. Meaning, “We are the same family.”
He reminded Governor Soludo that when he was competing, he talked about the regional geo-political economy. The people no longer want PDP and APC politics, He says.
Prof Oddo disclosed that in Ebonyi and Enugu, APGA billboards, posters, and vehicles are being destroyed. He indulged Soludo to make a speech as APGA Governor in regards to that in a joint conference.
Frank Nweke added that he is paying his respect to Governor Soludo for his great work and his laser focus on security and road infrastructure. He said he is delighted because he knows Soludo and has worked with him.
He recalled the amount of work Soludo did nationally as Chief Economic Adviser which drove the transformative agenda under president Obasanjo
And because of his work, President Obasanjo didn’t hesitate to nominate him as CBN Governor where he transformed the banking sector.
He also recalled how he and Soludo had the opportunity to serve with President Obasanjo, whom he described as a statesman, a lover of Nigeria, the most detribalized Nigerian.
What mattered according to Frank Nweke was the capacity and competence of each of the individuals appointed
“From the depth of my soul, I want to assure you that I have imbibed the spirit of Onye aghana nwanne that’s why I’m in APGA,” he said.
The Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr. Ernest Ezeajughi, and Special Adviser to the Governor on Political Matters, Alex Obiogbolu, amongst others attended the event.
