Chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA in Imo State, Barrister Peter Ezeobi has reiterated his stand to maintain a transparent primaries that will produce the governorship candidate of the party for the 2019 election.


The Chairman allayed the fears of those wishing to come into the party from other political parties with ambition for any elective position, saying he would resign than allowing imposition of candidates. Ezeobi spoke yesterday at the APGA Secretariat, Egbu Road Owerri when he met with the leadership of Owerri Municipal Council to reconcile some grey areas arising from filling some existing positions with members of other parties that recently defected to APGA.
He said, “I have rejected mouth watering offers, including those with promises of ministerial appointments. I will resign than allowing imposition or unfair treatment to any aspirant irrespective of when he joined the party and where he came from. I must give equal chances to all aspirants through which the best-candidate who will win the election emerges”.
As part of his transparency procedure, the Chairman advised the LGA exco of Owerri Municipal Council not to hold meeting of the party in the residence of any aspirant or any leader but only at the party office, adding that it will isolate them from aspirants and reduce any chances of undue influences that will create impression of interest in a particular aspirant against another.
In order to forestall the likelihood of any candidate defecting to another party with APGA victory, like the case of Governor Rochas and some state legislators, Ezeobi emphasized that the party will be very careful this time around and will discourage the emergence of such candidate, pointing out that every candidate of the party must be bonded against defection by entering into a legal agreement.
