“I will use all the resources, contacts and enormous goodwill available to me to support their ticket.

“These two people are decent, humble, compassionate people capable of transforming Anambra into a more prosperous and secured State, we shall all be proud of.
“I offered myself to serve as the Governor of Anambra State but Valentine Ozigbo will equally do better by providing purposeful leadership for our people,” he said.
Okoli thanked governor Obiano for giving him the opportunity to serve and the support he enjoyed while in APGA.
According to him, I hereby withdraw my membership of APGA.
