APGA is a mass movement, so it will not very difficult for us to get everybody back on track. We are working already. Yesterday [Monday] we were at the Mausoleum of our great leader, Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu, to dedicate the victory to his spirit, and to once again invoke his spirit to lead us in the November 16 battle.
