He noted that his major concern was the development of Enugu State, and its repositioning on the path of growth and all round development.

He said: “I will run an inclusive campaign to redeem our state, and I passionately appeal to other aspirants to support the APGA movement to take over Enugu State Government affairs by 2023.

“Our business is to take over Enugu State government. This victory, which is for the party, is just one step towards taking over government in Enugu State.

“We will march forward towards achieving this feat. We know that the next nine months before the election will be challenging, but with your prayers and support, we shall get there and conquer.”
