Alhaji Shinkafi who noted that the other major political parties have failed the nation over the years they have been at the helm of affairs said APGA founded on sound political principles and values, presents a viable solution to the sociopolitical problems the nation is presently facing.
He emphasized that the party is not contesting the Presidential election for formality sake but will be fielding qualified candidates to fly its flag and will also evolve strategies that will enable her to achieve the ambition of forming a central government in 2019.
