The chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Victor Oye has said that the party would take over eight more states in the country, having emerged victorious in the Saturday, November 18 governorship election in Anambra state.
Daily Trust reports that he said the party has already drawn a road map to achieve the feat ahead of the 2019 elections, adding that APGA remains the only party with a clear ideology.
NAIJ.com gathered that Oye who stated this during a press briefing in Awka, also dismissed as rumour the alleged plan by the governor, Willie Obiano to dump the party for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)
He said the party had never entertained fear of failure, saying it was the confidence and trust it had in God that gave it the victory.
"Some people had said that the election would mark the end of APGA, and that we would pack our bags and baggage and disappear from the political scene. But all I simply told them is if God agrees.
"It was the contributions of the opposition that helped us to win because if they had not challenged us the way they did, probably we wouldn't have put in much effort as we did," he added.
