A source told THISDAY that the national leadership of APGA will use the occasion to formally unveil the manifesto of the party to Nigerians.
The party will be seeking to extend its presence from Anambra to other parts of the country.

The source said that the party was hoping to consolidate on its landslide victory in the last governorship election in Anambra state by working for an impressive outing at the presidential poll as well as governorship and legislative elections in 2019.
