The Progressive Peoples’ Alliance (PPA) on Sunday said the current ward verification exercise in Abia was to mobilise supporters ahead of 2015 general elections.
Emeka Okafor, the state PPA chairman, gave the explanation when he led other members State Working Committee on a verification visit to 19 wards in Arochukwu Local Government Area.
“As a grassroots party, we believe that PPA would produce the next governors of states in the South East zone, especially Abia in 2015 because of merging political factors.
“For instance, PPA is one of the parties currently adjudged to be the most peaceful across Nigeria because we do not have any crisis.
“We believe that with such advantage and more effort, PPA will surprise many in 2015 general elections,’’ Okafor said.
He urged the local leadership of the party to open its doors for any people willing to register with the party.
According to him, our door is open for those wishing to enter PPA. We have no agenda to stop old or new members from returning to PPA.
