“The future of APGA as a major political Party in Nigeria will be served by APGA UK Chapter which will welcome wider membership from all stakeholders and Friends of Nigeria”, says Sir Onyeka Mbaso, Secretary of APGA UK Chapter.
The UK Chapter Executive inauguration has already begun to raise awareness outside the Country of the outstanding achievements of APGA Nigeria in political emancipation; people centred policies, reforms and advocacy.
The inauguration has therefore celebrated the positive role of Nigerians in their own political development, and a reasonable framework of co-operation and collaborative networks has been established between APGA Nigeria and the newly inaugurated APGA Executives in UK Chapter.
”We believe that APGA as a major political Party is playing a critical and increasingly dynamic role in pump priming voter confidence in the Nigeria nascent democracy and emerging economies”, says Sir Jude Ibe and Mr. Edwin Ajoku, Chairman BOT and Legal Adviser respectively
