NATIONAL Chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Dr Victor Oye, has said that the party stands the best chance to win the forthcoming 2019 gubernatorial elections in Imo and Abia States and that, it was going into the election to win all the posts it fielded candidates, including the presidential election.

Oye made this assertion yesterday in Awka while debunking allegations of unfair treatment during the primary elections, to woo aggrieved aspirants who lost the party’s tickets to sheathe their swords in the interest of good brotherliness which APGA stands for.

The chairman assured party members that all grievances would be addressed, adding that in spite of the challenges, APGA was accepted across the going by the number and spread of candidates running on its platform.

According to him, Imo as an APGA-controlled state was doing well before Gov. Rochas Okorocha abandoned the party to pitch tent with All Progressives Congress (APC), predicting that the state would be returned to APGA as well as Abia State.

“Imo is in the hand of God, God and the good people of Imo will determine who wins Imo, as a political party we are hopeful of victory. In 2007 we lost the opportunity of winning the state due to some miscalculations.

But in 2011, APGA won with Gov Okorocha before he jumped ship and today, he is getting rewards for his actions. Now, APGA has the biggest opportunity to win Imo with a very viable candidate and we are fielding candidates in the three senatorial zones,

10 federal constituencies and 27 state constituencies elections.We are good to go in Imo as well as Abia because our candidates are strong and we are just and fair in what we did in the two states in which nobody was shortchanged,” he said.

He said APGA gubernatorial candidates in all other states were formidable, adding that the party was in the race for the presidency to win.

“The enthusiasm about APGA is very high, for the first time, we have a presidential candidate and formidable governorship candidates in Abia, Delta, Taraba, Zamfara, Benue, Kebbi, Plateau and other states. We are running for the presidency to win, we have a candidate and a running mate, we are in the race to win if we are supporting President Muhammadu Buhari, we would have adopted him,” he continued.
