Ezeh, convener of the summit, said that with the already existing zoning arrangement and the ongoing transformation in the state, Soludo would be re-elected in 2025.

According to him, in the next ten years, APGA will capture the entire South East geopolitical zone.

In his remark, the Transition Committee Chairman of Onitsha North, Charles Ozoma challenged the youth to be more focused in life as the future of the state and the country at large lies in their hands.

“The youths have the fundamental responsibility to help build a better society; so, they should learn that power is in their hands,” he said.

Ozoma applauded the governor on the ongoing ‘one-youth, two skills’ empowerment programme in the state, adding that about 750 indigenes and non-indigenes residing in Onitsha have so far benefited from the programme.
