Ndi igbo must sustain APGA or wave bye bye to political relevance in Nigeria.

"As the November 18th governorship election heats up,several political heavyweights of Igbo extraction and organisations have voiced out their support for the incumbent governor of Anambra State,His Excellency Willie Obiano.Among them is Mazi Okey Kanu who gave cogent reasons why the incumbent governor should be reelected. He identified the achievements of Obiano especially in security as his biggest plus. The positive multiplier effects of his excellence in security are enormous.The average Anambra man can plan his life based on his savings that is not threatened by criminals.Our markets are expanding on daily basis due to patronage from all parts of Nigeria because of restored confidence of no highway criminals on our roads.Investors confidence in doing business in Anambra were restored.

Currently,Anambra is employing while other states in Nigeria are retrenching workers.Salaries were paid promptly on the 24th of every month.In fact,in Anambra State,banks accepts civil servants salaries as collaterals for soft loans because it is steady.Kanu also said by voting for Obiano and APGA,a strong ideology of the Igbo political cohesion would have been established.According to him,From the standpoint of an Igbo man,we must have an umbrella,a political position.It is important to understand that if we do not have a political position,we are not going anywhere.APGA offers that position.All Igbo must know this.We will be politically orphaned without our own political identity.This is very important.

"In fact,we should all forget the so-called Igbo Presidency if we do not have any political structure to call our own because the way Nigeria is structured,no ethnic group can rule without a political alliance with other ethnic groups.It used to be like this in the days of NCNC having political alliance with NPC,the days of NPP with NPN,that was why somebody like Edwin Ume-Ezeoke was the speaker of the House of Reps because of the political alliance of NPP and NPN.As you can see, the way things were structured,no ethnic group can do it alone;

Now here is the big question,if any other ethnic group wants to have political alliance with the Igbos for a bigger political picture,which party will be readily available for such negotiation? How will the Igbos come in during such negotiation? That is where the relevance of APGA comes in.It is our duty to sustain APGA or waive bye bye to political relevance in Nigeria.

First of all,Obiano is doing well.I have seen a lot of progress in security which is the primary responsibility of every government.I have seen well-maintained roads and so many other basic infrastructure built in Anambra. Governor Obiano has done well,I think in the whole of South-East, there is no where you have the type of networks of roads built and maintained by Obiano.To be adjudged the best governor in my fora are statements of facts to his excellence in governance in Nigeria.Obiano has been commended by even people from the opposing political parties.

Every Igbo man no matter where you are should know that the survival of APGA is the survival of our political identity.All Igbo should be thinking how best to make APGA a party that will give us the platform to advance our Igboness.This line of thinking should be paramount in our reasoning.

"The known is APGA and the unknown are other political parties like the PDP who were tested in Anambra State in 1999 to 2006 and the result was catastrophic.Ndi Igbo must consolidate by electing Governor Willie Obiano.He has done well; let us all eulogise him so that he can do more. Let us re-elect him to show that ‘ifeoma na adi anyi mma’ to show that we appreciate a good work,and that we are expecting our Governors from the southeast to always work for us like Willie Obiano.Again let me say it that our political survival is with APGA as a people.Reelection of Obiano will be a signal that we are ready for the journey ahead.

Henry Obah
President,Ora Igbo Union.
