Meanwhile, the APC in Anambra State has commenced the registration and revalidation of members with a promise to allow a level playing ground for all aspirants.
The party said that it plans to register between 750 and one million card-carrying members during the exercise.
The Chairman of the APC National Registration and Revalidation Committee, Mr. Chris Akomas, stated this in an interview with newsmen at Umunya, Oyi Local Government Area on Wednesday.
He spoke on the heels of Senator Andy Uba, representing Anambra South Senatorial Zone decamping to APC and registering in Uga Ward.
Akomas, who spoke after registering a governorship aspirant, Chike Obidigbo, said that the party had worked out a system to manage both its old and new members.
“We have come to make it easy and possible for all calibres of people, both the old and new in the party to work together as a family, especially in the South East zone”.
“Change is taking root in the country, we want to ensure that the members we have exists and are focused and committed. It is an opportunity to up the tempo and open the gateway for the South East geopolitical zone to take her rightful place in the scheme of things in the country,” he said.
In a remark, Obidigbo described the party as “the right place to be.”
He said the South East region had been politically shortchanged in the scheme of things in the country, and urged the people of the zone to turn out en mass to register for the exercise.
