Anambra deputy gov, Nkem Okeke, meets Buhari after defection to APC

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

The Deputy Governor of Anambra State, Dr Nkem Okeke, tolday, met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja.

Recall that KAFTAN Post had last week reported Okeke’s defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The deputy governor was led to the President by the APC Caretaker Committee Chairman and Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, and Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma.

Briefing State House correspondents at the end of the meeting, Uzodinma said he is confident that there will be more defections to the ruling party before the November 6 governorship in Anambra State.

The governor, however, faulted that claims by Governor Willie Obiano that members of the State House of Assembly who defected from the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) were financially induced to join the ruling party.

He stressed that rather than enticing the lawmakers with money, they were lobbied through persuasion and counselling.

Meanwhile, the leadership of the APC has inaugurated the party’s State Congress Committee chairmen and secretaries.

APC Caretaker Committee Secretary, Senator John Apkanudoedehe, who inaugurated the officials at the party’s secretariat in Abuja, urged them to sustain the gains already made by the party’s leadership.

He also appealed to the newly inaugurated party officials to work hard and prevent disagreements that could affect the party’s fortunes in 2023.

Apkanudoedehe commended the Senate for approving electronic transmission of election results for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
