The Enugu State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has inaugurated 11 committees to organise the presidential rally of the party slated for Wednesday, January 11, at the Dr. Michael Okpara Square in Enugu.

Addressing the committees during the inauguration in Enugu yesterday, the State APC Chairman Ugochukwu Agballah urged them to organise a befitting and hitch-free presidential rally to demonstrate to the people of the state and other parts of the Southeast that ruling national party is ready to take over power in the state and region.

Agballah said the people of the state were ready to receive the presidential and vice presidential candidates of the party, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima, and to convince the people that the party’s candidate is a development-oriented personality with the capacity, experience and national acceptability to tackle the challenges currently facing the nation.

The chairman said the APC in Enugu State would use the presidential rally as a launch pad to the Lion Building, Enugu State’s seat of power.

“We are prepared to dislodge the cabals ruling Enugu State for the last 24 years…

“So, we are kicking off the campaign with the presidential campaign on January 11. We will kick off the presidential campaign that will be the mother of all rallies,” he said.

We intend to use that opportunity to demonstrate the fact that our party has grown exponentially.

“Today, we have had more than 10 fold increase in membership. We’re going to bring out our members to tell the world that APC is ready to take over the governance of Enugu State,” he said.

The various committees are: Finance, Venue and Decoration, Protocol, Welfare, Security and Accommodation.

Others are: Media and Publicity, Transport, Mobilisation, Medical and Support Groups.
