It has been reported that the alleged defection of the Deputy Governor, Dr. Nkem Okeke, to the All Progressives Congress (APC) is still hearsay, according to Ifeatu Obiokoye, special adviser to Governor Willie Obiano on political matters.
Obiokoye stated that the Deputy Governor has not made any official statement categorically declaring that he has defected to the APC.
Obiokoye also stated that the Deputy Governor has not made any official statement declaring that he has defected to the APC.
During a conversation with our correspondent in his office at Government House Awka, the governor’ s aide pointed out that no one, not even the Deputy Governor’ s media aide, has come out publicly in writing to say that the Deputy Governor has defected from the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Deputy Governor is brilliant and well- educated enough to understand that there is a formal resignation process, according to him. As a result, no one writes a love letter and claims it is an official document. As I speak with you, there is no official letter signed by the Governor of the state stating that he has transferred his support from the APGA to the APC.
When it comes to those who have found solace in the APC as a result of the election, there are two types of people. The first category is what I refer to as prisoners of war. Those who are having issues with the EFCC.
Individuals with cases pending with the EFCC include some members of the state assembly as well as some members of the national assembly.
The author says the second class of people who defected to the APC are those who are hungry in their hearts. A large number of people are unaware of the fundamentals and underlying principles that underpin the existence of the APGA. The APGA is a political party that is unlike any other.
It is a political movement that arose out of the belief that Ndigbo needed their own platform to stand on. It appears that the Igbos of Anambra state are making a concerted effort to keep APGA afloat.
