Describing the manner he intends to represent the people as their senator, Okagbue said he would run an open door policy. “I will run an open door policy as your senator”. Speaking on the challenges of APGA in the past, he said the party looses General Election because party men and women withdrew support from the candidate. “Before, APGA has lost this election because party people do not support our candidate; if party supports our candidate, he will win. You are the party. If you support me, then, I will win. If you agree that I will go, then, I will go. My personal needs are few. So my preoccupation will be you, our party men and women; our constituents”, Uzuegbuna Okagbue pledged.
Responding, the Awka North local government party chairman, Chimezie Ikwune urged the people to support Uzu, attesting that he has known Uzuegbuna Okagbue over the years, and that what he said he will do is what he will do. “Awka North, you have heard our brother.
