2025 : APGA sets up over 12,000 kindred structures in Anambra

BY RAYMOND OZOJI, Awka

As political permutations gather momentum preparatory to the 2025 governorship election in Anambra State, the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) says it is not leaving any stone unturned as the party takes governance back to the grassroots.

Speaking exclusively with this journalist Raymond Ozoji at the APGA Regional Headquarters in Awka, the state chairman of the party, High Chief Barr. Ifeatu Obi-Okoye, said the mission of the party is to ensure that every political ward constituted its kindred structures by December this year as there are over 12,000 kindreds in the state.

Obi-Okoye said that the constitution of the Kindreds ( Umunna structures ) would be an added advantage to the All Progressives Grand Alliance as it goes into the election next year.

Obi-Okoye who spoke about the one year anniversary of the new state leadership of the party, said they have been able to maintain stability in the party devoid of any crisis in the last one year.

He said they needed to take the party beyond ward level; recalling that fundamentally when APGA was registered and formed in 2002, it was formed as the party that derives its strength from the ordinary man at the grassroots.

He said his administration has taken APGA back to its fundamental structure which is the kindred structure building it around the traditional leadership in the villages, adding that the good governance of the Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo’s administration has helped the party to really penetrate the grassroots.

The APGA state chairman emphasized that the purpose of setting up the Solution Kindred Structures was to ensure that all government benefits, palliatives, economic empowerments and other largesse got to the common man at the grassroots without being denied or shortchanged in the value chain.

He disclosed that the government of Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo is setting up what he mentioned as Onye Aghana Nwanneya Cooperative. The cooperative, according to him, is not for the rich and influential people but for the poor whereby they group themselves into economic groups to enable them get grants and loans from government to establish their own businesses.

According to him, every polling unit in the community is built around the kindred structure such that when a polling unit is lost, it means the individual has lost his kindred in such election.

He said that the Solution Kindred Initiative would be sustained because he believes the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) is a mass movement rooted in the grassroots.
