My fellow Dunukofia APGA faithfuls, I have been so touched by all the well-wishes that I have received over the past few hours. But, it’s my turn to say thanks. It is a deserved honour to have served the greatest party in south east and Nigeria in general, in the capacity of party secretary.
Whether i have knew you personally or rarely agreed at all in our deliberations, those deliberations are what have kept me honest, and kept me inspired, and kept me going. And every day, I have learned from you. You made me a better APGA secretary, and you made me a better man.
It was on these APGA where I witnessed the power of faith, and the quiet dignity of working people in the face of struggle and loss.
After many years as Dunukofia APGA secretary, I still believe that, and it’s not just my belief, It’s the beating heart of our party idea and our bold experiment in our able governors agenda.
It’s the conviction that we are all created equal, endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights, among them life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It’s the insistence that these rights, while self-evident, have never been self-executing, that we, the People, through the instrument of our party ideology, can form a more perfect party structure.
What a radical idea, the great gift that our party founders gave to us. The freedom to chase our party dreams through our sweat, and toil, and imagination and the imperative to strive together as well, to achieve a common good, a greater good of our great party.
My fellow APGA Dunukofia faithfuls, it has been the honor of my life to serve you as the party secretary. I won’t stop, in fact, I will be right there with you, as a party member and a stakeholder, for all my remaining days. But for now, whether you are new or old in the party or an aspirant or an executive, I do have one final ask of you as your out going party secretary, the same thing I promised you, when I took an oath of office as APGA Dunukofia ,few years ago.
I am asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about change, but in yours, to make APGA, the best political party in history of Nigeria.
Thank you. God bless you. And may God continue to bless APGA, our great party.
Hon. Chike Samuel Odoji….
