The All Progressives Grand Alliance has written the late Chukwuemeka Ojukwu and nominated the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, as his successor.
In statement by the National Chairman of the party, Victor Oye, on Thursday, APGA assured the late Igbo leader of making more history.
While nominating Obiano as his successor, the party said the Anambra State governor had redefined governance in Nigeria through his legacy projects.
The letter read in part, “All of us in APGA sorely miss you, Ikemba Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, our indefatigable leader for life.
“Your footprints in the sands of time remain an inerasable testimony to your accomplishments while on earth.
“Your selflessness, oratory, courage and aristocracy singled you out from among your contemporaries.
“We know you are happy where you are, because you left your house in order before the journey to beyond.
“We assure you that we will keep the light you lit burning, no matter the intractability of whatever challenges we are made to confront.
“Your successor, Governor Willie Obiano, has redefined governance in Nigeria through his legacy projects, prudent management of human and material resources, provision of adequate security and regular payment of salaries, pensions and gratuities. Anambra State is now the toast of the world.”
