Nwigberi, who described the APGA as one United powerful political party in Africa, enjoined them to support the party to maintain it’s status for the development of the Local government, State, and the Nation.
He also assured the decampees of his council’s readiness to carry everybody along irrespective of any differences.
They were issued membership cards of the APGA to enable them participate fully in the party affairs.
Also Present, was the incoming Governor of Ebonyi State, Prof. Bernard Ifeanyichukwu Odoh, who described the event as a great opportunity for the party to conveniently face the future challenge.
