 He said, “I am already looking beyond the primary election, because by the special grace of God, Heaven has endorsed us and the entire people of Anambra State, not just the APGA faithful, are in support of our candidacy.”

 While extolling the virtues of Gov Willie Obiano and the National Chairman of APGA, Victor Oye, Umeoji reaffirmed his commitment towards a better Anambra State where the rule of law will reign supreme, infrastructures provided and employment given to the jobless youth.

 He stressed that his gubernatorial ambition is hinged on consolidation and continuity, noting that Gov Obiano had done well and would be leaving bogus shoes behind.
