APGA has proven its worth and capacity as the third largest political party in Nigeria as its number in the National Assembly keep increasing.
This time around Hon Shehu Saleh Rijau (Slow) wins the rerun election for Magama/Rijau Federal Constituency in Niger State on the 6th February 2021. This has been authenticated and announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as he polled 22,965 votes to defeat his PDP counterpart that got 22,507 votes.
The newly elected Hon member and his team gloriously visited the APGA National Chairman at his country home Amawbia in a show of solidarity and appreciation.
He was warmly welcomed by the National APGA Chairman, Ozonkpu Dr Victor Oye and members of Ozonkpu solidarity group.

In his response, the newly elected house member Hon Shehu Saleh was excited and grateful with the kind of uncommon reception he received. He assured the National Chairman and other APGA members that he will never let APGA down nor defect to other party but will work assiduously towards producing more House of Assembly members in Niger state.
