As the 2019 general elections draw nearer, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra state has begun moves at winning the National Assembly and House of Assembly seats in the state during the polls.
Punch reports that the party, which held a stakeholders meeting in Nnewi, said there were indications that many legislators from other political parties would defect to APC before the general elections.
NAIJ.com gathers that in a goodwill message sent to the meeting by the state chairman of the party, Emeka Ibeh, APC members were urged not to relent in membership drive. The chairman advised them “not to hesitate to accept those wanting to join the party from other political parties.”
He said: "The leadership of the party is already fashioning ways of repositioning APC in the southeast geo-political zone ahead of the elections."
According to him, the Nnewi meeting was put together to provide a platform for major stakeholders and leaders of the party in the area to brainstorm on the way forward.
In the same vein, the need for peace, unity and cohesion, was emphasised by the deputy governorship candidate of the party in the November 18, 2017, election, Dozie Ikedife. He said those factors would help the party in achieving its objectives.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, February 5, had a meeting with All Progressives Congress (APC) delegation from the southeast at the presidential villa in Abuja.
