NIGERIA: Opposition Party, APGA Adopts Jonathan As 2015 Candidate

Ahead of the 2015 general elections, the All Progressives Grand Alliance has offered automatic tickets to President Goodluck Jonathan and Victor Umeh.

Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State disclosed this on Saturday in Awka where a mega-rally was held to urge Jonathan to seek re-election as President.

Obiano however said the party’s candidates for all other elective positions would be determined through primaries.

While Jonathan has the party’s presidential ticket; Umeh, APGA’s national chairman, will fly the party’s banner in the Anambra Central Senatorial election.

Umeh said APGA had gone into an accord with the Peoples Democratic Party to support Jonathan for the presidential election.

Former Anambra State Governor, Mr. Peter Obi, was absent at the rally. But Obiano said Obi got permission to travel to the United States to attend the World Igbo Congress.

Former Senate President, Ken Nnamani and former PDP national women’s leader, Mrs. Josephine Anenih, presented solidarity messages at the rally.
