1779771_641606602570322_1383271394_nSome top members of the PDP and APC in Anambra State have defected to APGA. Those who declared for the party at Onitsha Inland Town playground included some former members of the National and State Assemblies.

They include a former member representing Onitsha North and South Federal Constituency, Lynda Ikpeazu; Emeka Nwamkpa of APC; former members of the State House of Assembly, Lilian Okosi Ikenna Amechi and Chinedu Mokwe; a former PDP State Chairman, Dr. Fred Oduah; a former Transition Committee Chairman, Onitsha North, Mr. Bright Osemeka and Chief Eddie Okosi, among many others.

Hon. Lynda Ikpeazu said they decided to join APGA because they believed in its ideology and disclosed that they were collapsing all their political structures into the party.

Also speaking, Chief Eddie Onwumelu said they were attracted by the landmark achievements of APGA government in the last eight years. He observed that APGA remained the only platform to protect the Igbo agenda.

In his speech, Governor Peter Obi said the new entrants would be part of the future of the party as APGA would continue to work as a family to further uplift the party. He explained that politics should be dynamic and people-oriented to serve the collective interest of the State.

Also speaking, the Governor-elect, Chief Willie Obiano, while commending their wisdom and courage called on others to follow their footsteps and join APGA, describing the party as a moving train with its doors open for everybody.

Earlier, while receiving them, the National Chairman of APGA, Chief Victor Umeh who described them as rich harvest for the party, noted that since Governor Obi became the National Leader and BOT Chairman of APGA, all opposition parties were collapsing into APGA because of his landmark achievements.

Chief Umeh said with the success of APGA government in the State, other South East States should join the party to forge a common front as the party was making waves across the centre and was poised to win more States in the coming elections.
