APGA: THE MOST PEOPLE-ORIENTED POLITICAL PARTY IN NIGERIA
It is an undeniable truth in this Fourth Republic that the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA has enthroned the most people oriented governments in Nigeria. Governors produced only in Anambra state by the party since 2006, have been second to none in the country, in terms of good governance and delivery of democracy dividends. Some political pundits say that the superlative performances of ex-governor Peter Obi and incumbent Governor Willie Obiano, are inspired and guided by the people oriented manifesto of APGA and injunction of the spiritual leader of the Party, late Dim Chukwueneka Odumegwu-Ojukwu. Dim Ojukwu believed that APGA governments should tap from ideas expressed in the famous “Ahiara Declaration” formulated in the defunct Republic of Biafra.However it may be, APGA administrations in Anambra have in the past twelve years restored and sustained good governance, after a long period of maladministration, political and socioeconomic instability foisted on the state by one of the major political parties in the country. Today, the people of the state are living in a very peaceful atmosphere conducive for business to thrive. Ndi Anambra are apparently the happiest people in Nigeria as evidenced by their per capital income and human development index which have been adjudged by the World Bank as the most impressive in Nigeria. In spite of the economic recession in the country, Anambra under APGA governments is the least indebted state in Nigeria, according to the records of the Debt Management Office, DMO, Abuja.
