The National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Ifeatu Obi-Okoye, has said that the party has not zoned its Presidential ticket to any part of the country.
Obi-Okoye made the statement in Awka, the Anambra state capital.
He said the party would not make the mistakes of the past where it did not present any Presidential candidate in past elections.
“But one thing is clear, we must field a Presidential candidate in 2019. We won’t make the mistake of the past when we endorsed another party’s candidate as ours.”
“We have not zoned our Presidential candidate to any part of the country. But since APGA is seen as a political party with Igbo interest, it’s natural that we may look for a Presidential candidate within.
Obi-Okoye said the Anambra Governor, Willie Obiano, was top in the party’s consideration for the ticket.
“His Excellency, the Executive governor of Anambra state has distinguished himself as a great party man with great achievements; so he is one of our best for the 2019 Presidential race.
