38 Years Old Ezeokenwa Sylvester Emerges APGA National Chairman

Thirty-Eight-year-old, Sylvester Ezeokenwa emerged as the new National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) on Wednesday in Awka.

Before dissolving the old Executive Committee of the party, the former national chairman gave account of his stewardship and said he left N300 million in the party’s bank account.

Okenwa, a legal practitioner, defeated his co-contestants to emerge victorious in the election that held at the Party’s Regional Secretariat in Awka on Wednesday.

The new APGA National Chairman is the Commissioner for Special Duties under Governor Chukwuma Soludo as well as the National Legal Adviser of APGA.

Shortly after emerging the winner of the keenly-contested election, he was sworn-in alongside the newly elected National Officers of the Party.

Among members are Oye and former deputy governors – Emeka Sibeudu and Dame Virgy Etiaba; wife of eternal leader of the party Bianca Odumegwu Ojukwu, and Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe.

Soludo reacts:
We have taken another leap of faith in electing new members of the National Working Committee of our great party, APGA. The APGA 2023 Congress from Ward, Local Government, State and, today’s National Convention has set a new standard in the conduct of Party congress in the country. For this, I am proud of all our members across the country.

I am particularly excited that the new National Chairman of APGA, Barr. Sly Ezeokenwa Jr. is a man with fresh ideas and equal energy to match words with action. His “Project DRIVE APGA” has all the trappings of disruptive leadership, and I trust its potency to actually drive our Party to a whole new dimension of growth. To the immediate past NWC led by the indefatigable Ozonkpu Victor Ike Oye, I extend my sincere appreciation for giving APGA their best of time, talent and treasure. To all members of APGA, I say to you, this is the dawn of a new era of progressivism we must embrace and nurture to the benefit of the party.
