COORDINATOR of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Stakeholders Forum, Chief Sylvester Nwobu-Alor, said, weekend, that the party, as presently constituted, was faulty, adding that its apparent internal intrigues and external dysfunctions made its steady descent to doom inevitable.
Nwobu-Alor, who is a founding member of APGA, decried what he called the erosion of the ideals of the founding fathers of the party.
According to him, APGA was initially structured to be a national party with an Igbo base, regretting, however,that vision was thwarted by the inordinate ambition of past leaders of the party.
He said: “The primary duty of every political party is to grow and move to greater heights, but sadly in the case of APGA, the party lost its integrity and confidence and this has trailed and hunted it as a political party till date.
“This wobbling nature has also rubbed off negatively on the APGA-led government in Anambra State.
“Restructuring and repositioning is what APGA desperately needs, to make room for the equitable sharing of the party’s positions to members from different backgrounds so as to make for the envisioned national spread and appeal.”
He said the late leader of APGA, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, would not have been pleased with what was happening to the party, which, according to him, was the reason many stakeholders had left the party and distanced themselves from the government of Chief Willie Obiano.
