Destiny Akaraka Nwagwu, the candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, in the just concluded bye election in Aba North and Aba South federal constituency, has reacted to the outcome of the polls.
Nwagwu congratulated the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, flagbearer, Hon Chimaobi Ebisike on his victory at the poll.

According to him, “I have just called him, Chimaobi Ebisike on phone and congratulated him on his victory. I will only urge him to ensure dividends of democracy get to the doorsteps of Aba people. Aba need infrastructural facelift. I congratulate once again”.
