Ogboru said, “APGA has plans for every Deltan in the area of Education, Health, Agriculture, Infrastructural Development, Environment, investment comparative areas that we have, to equal opportunities in local government development initiatives”.

Chairman of the party’s Campaign Council, Prince Emma Okotie-Eboh advised the people against voting for recycled politicians, saying PDP and APC the same in the state.
