The Authentic Progressive Forum was at the Golden Tulip Resort in the company of Barr Dr Mrs Ify Obegolu the Mother of the Forum in celebration of our working Governor HE chief Dr Willie Obiano Akpokuodike Global second inauguration eve ceremony of second tenure. We were privileged to be introduced to the world erudite professor Chukwuma Soludo (Ochendo old Aguata) who appreciated the Forum for their efforts in sustaining a formidable APGA party. Among those that were present were: the father founder, Hon George Nzekwe (Agujiegbe), the National Chairman of the Forum Hon Mrs Jane Ejiofor (Ojiefi), the National woman Leader Lady Felicia Okika, the Advisor and House Member representing the good people of Awka 1 Hon Dr Pharm Nnamdi Okafor, the Chairman of the BOT prince Obinna Ndigwe, the Members of the BOT- Hon Emeka Igwe, Great Ugwoke and Associate Prof Ezeh, the deputy Chairman Chinedu Okafor and the rest of other members including the local govt liaison officers. Our Advisor and sec introduced the forum’s mission and vision to the bewilderment of Processor Soludo on our request that he become the Father of the Forum. In his response our erudite professor Soludo praised the effort of the forum in sustaining a strong and formidable APGA structure for the unity of the Igbo people. Stressing on the need for the Igbo to be united he highlights the importance of the unity of Igbo people under the umbrella of APGA urging that there is need for a mass mobilization of all Igbo men and women. He Commended the forum for establishing a structure that will bind thw Igbo people together. He emphasised that the unity of APGA should be emphasised and unnegotiable if we must be part of the policy makers in the country. And that the unity of the party forms a strong machine that will carry us far. He Urged all not to allow factions to sprout in the forum and APGA at large. Nice move.
