Mr Kayode Alabi, the party ‘s Chairman in the state, congratulated the governor in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
He said Obiano’s picking of APGA’s ticket at the party’s primary on Tuesday was a measure of the confidence the party reposed in him to lead the state.
Alabi said Obiano had delivered purposeful leadership in Anambra and so deserved another term to govern the state.
“We at the Lagos chapter of the party congratulate Gov Obiano of Anambra state for winning the party’s governorship ticket at the primary yesterday for the November election.
“The ticket is well deserved, having delivered purposeful leadership in Anambra. We are proud of him and we wish him all the best,”he said.
Alabi said under Obiano, Anambra had witnessed phenomenal development.
He said it was on record that Anambra had been made a state with one of the lowest poverty rates under Obiano.
The party chairman said education had been moved to greater heights in the state under the Obiano administration.
“Also, agriculture also received a boost under him, with the state exporting pumpkin leaf to Europe and America.
“The governor has clearly done well and so deserves a second term,”he said.
Alabi urged the people of Anambra to give Obiano a second term to continue the good work.
