Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State has been elected as the new National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
Soludo was elected on Friday during a meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party in Awka, the Anambra State capital.
While speaking after his election, Soludo accepted the recognition as an honour and privilege, saying he feels the weight of history, including that of the nation’s forbears who lived their lives as progressives.
He claimed that APGA is the first political party registered with the name “progressives” and has become the home of progressives.
Soludo pledged to work actively with all APGA faithful and to extend invitation to all true progressives to converge on APGA as their home to enable it to grow for true progressive leadership in Nigeria at the right time.
