“I believe that with the support of Ndigbo and support of well meaning Nigerians who are disenchanted with other political parties parading Hausa and Yoruba backgrounds and championing the interests of their regions instead of interests of Nigerians, it is not impossible to enthrone Igbo President under APGA”.
