"Present here with me today are, members of the State Working Committee, the 17 L.G.A Chairmen and the ward Chairmen of the 184 wards of the state, as well as former state and L.G.A officers of the party.

"Due to the Covid-19 challenges, coupled  with the large number of APGA members willing to be part of today's event,we directed our L.G.A Executives, Ward Executives and other members to carry out their declarations at their various wards, so that this place wouldn't experience any form of Covid-19 breaches and possible stampede. 

"We know that the constitution and ideologies of the APC attach so much priority to discipline, loyalty and supremacy of the party over every individual, therefore we are excited because our track record of commitment, discipline and loyalty would make it easier for us to quickly integrate and be part of the big APC family".
