Six members of the Anambra State House of Assembly elected on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, have defected to the All Progressives Congress.
They were received by the Chairman APC Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee and Yobe state Governor Mai Mala Buni, at a brief ceremony at the Imo Governors Lodge, on Tuesday.
The six state lawmakers are Hon. Nonso Okafor, representing Nnewi North, Timothy Ifedioramma, representing Njikoka 1, Cater D. N Umeoduagu, representing Aguata 1, Lawrence Ezeudu, representing Dumekofia, Arthur Chiekwu, representing Idemmih North and Edward Ibuzo, representing Onisha North 2.
Buni while receiving the lawmakers restated the party’s determination to win the Anambra governorship election hence the zeal in engaging critical stakeholders in Anambra state.
Buni said, “Mere looking at what is happening, especially now that so prominent and serving state lawmakers have started joining, the grassroots is moving and Anambra people are moving to the APC.”
