Amid jubilation, Imo APGA exco recieves Araraume

Frontline governorship aspirant in the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, has officially declared his membership of the party to the expanded State Working Committee members and leaders of the party. It was a celebration galore on Monday, the 17th Sept., 2018 as the Imo 2019 governorship hopeful was at the party’s secretariat to interact with the party leadership in Owerri, Imo state capital, to streamline ways to move the party forward ahead of the general elections.
Speaking to the capacity audience, Senator Araraume informed the SWC members that he would bring his legislative as well as his party experience to bear in strengthening the party to win all the elective positions in the forthcoming general election.
It would be recalled that Senator Ifeanyi Araraume was the state party chairman of the defunct All Peoples Party, APP, about 20 years ago and a former law maker in the Red Chambers of the Nigerian National Assembly for eight years.
Senator Araraume asserted that with his experience, APGA will be positioned to win elections in the state as well as other South East states in the coming elections, assuring that his formidable support structure which has been sustained over the years will be immediately collapsed into the party.
The Isiebu, Isiala Mbano-born politician, however, urged the party to ensure that a level playing ground prevailed in the selection of its candidates as he pointed out that it would make the party come out stronger to win elections without rancur or acrimony among the aspirants and leaders of the party. “I believe that if we conduct the primaries in a free and fair manner, if I lose, I will throw my support behind the winner to ensure our victory. I believe that by the Grace of God and our collective efforts, APGA will win all the elective positions in the state”, he submitted.
He also lauded the APGA-led government in Anambra state, explaining that the party has done marvelously well in the state and promised to replicate that in the state if voted in as the Imo State governor in 2019.
Senator Araraume further reiterated his commitment to ensure that good governance will top his agenda, pointing out that Imo will be better in a situation where pensioners are paid as at when due and an enabling environment for job creation created.
The former federal lawmaker decried the level of injustice in his former party, the All Progressives Congress, even as he explained that Imo state is above one man arrogating all the powers to himself, noting further that no Imo state indigene will suffer injustice in his administration.
In his response, the state chairman of the party, Barrister Peter Ezeobi, expressed delight for receiving Araraume into the party. Barr.. Ezeobi narrated that the party had wished to welcome Araraume into the party long ago, expressing delight that at the end, their wish had finally been met. He further reaffirmed the party’s resolve to ensure a level playing ground for all the aspirants in the race. “On behalf of the expanded exco, I promise you free and fair primaries, I am very impressed by the formidable structure of Distinguished Senator Ifeanyi Araraume and I believe that with such a structure coming into our great party, APGA’s, victory is assured”, the chairman stated.
Following an earlier, complaint over the insufficiency of party membership cards as a result of the entry of Destiny Organization members, Senator Araraume donated the sum of 10 Million naira for the printing of more cards for new members and an additional N12.6 million for sundry expenses on preparation for the forthcoming primaries.
