APC plans Grand reception for Nnamani, Kalu, Ifeanyi Ubah, Others

by on February 15, 2017
With more influen­tial Igbo joining the All Progres­sives Congress (APC), the South East zone has initiat­ed arrangements to hold a grand reception for them.
The party, which praised the Chairman of Capital Oil and Gas Industries Limit­ed and the Publisher of The AUTHORITY Newspapers, Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah, for joining the APC, charged those still on the edge to follow his ex­ample.
The party also hailed oth­er prominent Igbo politicians for using the opportunity of the ongoing registration and revalidation exercise of the party membership in the South East zone to join the APC.
Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah wants to use the APC platform to con­test the Anambra State gov­ernorship election holding later in the year.
In view of the mass ex­odus to the APC, the zonal leaders appealed to the na­tional secretariat of the party to extend the registration ex­ercise to accommodate more members.
In a press statement is­sued on Tuesday by the APC National Vice Chairman (South East), Hon. Emma Eneukwu and the Zonal Publicity Secretary, Hon. Hy­acinth Ngwu, the party said that even though the exer­cise has yielded results, lack of registration materials is inhibiting its overall success.
Eneukwu said: “The on­going continuous registra­tion exercise in APC South East zone which has record­ed a huge turnout is on-track and peaceful. The par­ty has exceeded its projected membership in the zone, and therefore is requesting from the national leadership for the provision of more ma­terials and extension of the time allotted for the exercise”.
“The APC South East welcomes all the prominent Igbo politicians who had re­cently joined the party with their over 600,000 support­ers in the zone, particular­ly Senator Ken Nnamani (former Senate President), Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, Sena­tor Andy Uba, Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah, Hon. Eugene Odo (former Speaker, Enugu State House of Assembly), Chief Sam Onyishi (former PDP governorship aspirant, Enu­gu State), amongst others.
The party advised other prominent politicians from the zone who are still on the edge to crossover to the par­ty as “the Igbo are naturally progressives.”
Eneukwu said that the APC has set up a commit­tee to organise a grand re­ception for Nnamani, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah, Kalu, Onyishi and others.
He stated the commit­ment of the party to winning the 2017 Anambra State gov­ernorship election and going ahead to capture Abia, Eb­onyi and Enugu states in the 2019 general elections.
