The All Progressives Congress, Anambra State chapter, on Saturday formally welcomed Senator Ifeanyi Ubah and Senator Uche Ekwunife, along with their supporters and others, into the party.

This is the first time Ubah, after joining the APC on October 12, 2023, will be visiting the APC fold in Anambra.

While welcoming them to the party, the state chairman of the APC, Chief Basil Ejidike and Senator Andy Ubah thanked them for joining the APC.

Ejidike, who formally received the two senators, hailed the leadership qualities of President Bola Tinubu while requesting more commitment from other members of the party

Ejidike, who spoke about the prospect of APC taking Anambra State in 2025 through the new entrants, said, “We can achieve this great feat if we want because the manpower and resources are readily available.

“The year 2025 affords us yet another opportunity to contest and win Anambra State Government House. Let us as one family work towards achieving this goal for our party.

“I enjoin the new members not to fail to sustain their dogged and positive humanitarian spirits, which is their hallmark. We urge you to double this inherent spirit in your service to the party.

“The APC will definitely provide you the platform to do more in this regard. I pledge our unalloyed support and cooperation in all our dealings with all of you. Please, rest assured that the party is large enough to accommodate everyone’s political aspirations.”

Ubah, in his acceptance speech, said the wait for APC to take over Anambra had ended with his joining the party.

He said, “APC would no longer keep quiet in Anambra, pretending that all was well when things are going wrong. APC has finally arrived in Anambra State.

“It’s unfortunate that Anambra State is yet to connect to the center despite the fact that we have what it takes to drive development, as Anambra remains the gateway to the South-East.”

He said that he is ready for debate anytime, any day, and where so that Ndi Anambra will know the truth.

Also, in her reaction, Ekwunife thanked the APC party faithful for accepting them into the fold of the party and promised that she would do her best to ensure that the party gains traction in the state.

She, therefore, called on party faithful to support the drive to move the party forward in the state to galvanise the party towards truly connecting to the centre.

Other members stressed that they are happy to welcome such personalities with pedigree into their fold. They, however, called on them to be diligent in propagating the internal harmony of the party in the state.
