Declare support for Senator Uche Ekwunife
The former Ward Chairmen and executives of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) were today Wednesday welcomed to the fold of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) after they dumped their former political party over what they described as a lack of purposeful leadership and poor reward system.
The group led by Hon Onyeka Nzeako, the former APGA Chairman of all Chairmen (Ward) and the Anambra Central Coordinator of the G21, a group of former APGA leaders believes that APGA as a political party has lost touch with its purpose of existence.
Coveying their message, Hon Nzeako described the group’s departure from APGA as a relief. He noted that APGA was once the beautiful bride of Anambrarians, however, greed, lack of purpose and vision by her leaders have left the party in comatose.
Speaking further, Nzeako noted that the group’s adoption of Senator Uche Ekwunife as its Candidate for the 2019 Anambra Central Senatorial election was borne out of the solid and visionary contributions she brought into APGA when she was a member of the party between 2010 and 2014.
“When Senator Ekwunife was a member of our party APGA, she exhibited tremendous courage and showed high regard for party men and women. She also delivered sound representation to the people of Anaocha, Dunukofia and Njikoka Federal Constituency which she represented in the House of Representatives”, Nzeako said.
Continuing, Nzeako lamented that today the leaders of APGA have become insensitive to the plight of members. According to Nzeako, greed, self-centeredness and lack of purpose have become an albatross to the growth of APGA which was once the pride of igboland when individuals like HE Mr. Peter Obi and Senator Uche Ekwunife were in the party.
Welcoming the former Chairmen to PDP, the State Chairman of PDP, Chief Ndubusi Nwobu expressed delight that the former Chairmen and their executives have choosen to follow the path of light, progress and good governance by joining the People’s Democratic Party. He reiterated his commitment to making PDP a respected brand in Anambra State.
Chief Nwobu assured the new entrants that he will ensure that they are well integrated into the party, noting that as grassroots party leaders their role is critical in ensuring that democracy and its dividends is felt in the grassroots.
