- new Exco inaugurated in Anambra
The National Chairman of the Progressive People’s Alliance, PPA, Comrade Peter Ameh, has declared that his party’s brand of political opposition is not name-calling; that it is rather constructive and is geared towards the overall interest of the electorate.
Ameh, who was in Anambra state to inaugurate the new state executive committee of the party yesterday, charged the committee to use their position to reposition PPA in the state.
According to Ameh, “we want to reorganise the party in Anambra state; we want to reposition PPA in the state. We don’t want what happened during the governorship election of November 18, 2017 to repeat itself “.
“Our democracy is growing and improving at a slow pace but I still believe that we will get to our destination one day, “Ameh said.
He commended the leader of the party in the state, Mr. Godwin Ezeemo, for taking the party to a greater height, adding that the aim of the party was to inject new blood into the system.
Ezeemo, who was the governorship candidate of the party during the November 18, 2017 election, said members should make sacrifices for things to work.
He said the problem in Nigeria politics was that everyone wants to lead and no one wants to be led, adding that, for PPA to succeed, the members had to be focused.
Speaking on behalf of the new executive, the state chairman, Sir Dan Igbokwubili, said their predecessors came to ridicule the party in the state and not to lead, the very reason it performed poorly during the election.
He said the party’s new executive would strive to salvage the situation, noting that those elected to lead it were all tested hands, promising that they would not disappoint the people.
