No fewer than 3,000 members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), five weeks to the November 6, 2021 governorship election in Anambra State.
During the defection at the Ozigbo Vanguard office in Awka, weekend, the National Youth Leader of APC, Ferguson Ogbonnaya, contended that the defection was due to lack of internal democracy in APGA and other undemocratic activities of the party.
Ogbonnaya, who is also the Executive Assistant to Governor Willie Obiano on Youth Affairs, pointed out the group was convinced that the governorship candidate of PDP, Valentine Ozigbo, and his running mate, Mrs. Azuka Enemo, would clinch the state’s exalted seat.
ON a sad note, Senator Andy Uba Gubernatorial Campaign Organisation (SAUGCO) has condemned the gruesome killing of APC chieftain in Anambra, Somadina Oforma, last Sunday.
In a statement by Head of Media Unit, Victor Ogene, yesterday, SAUGCO quoted Uba as declaring the killing of Oforma as “politically-motivated murder, which was one too many.”
It called on Obiano and security agencies in the state, to urgently take steps to arrest the worsening security situation in the state.
