More prominent politicians in Anambra State, both from the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have continued to move to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

They pledged support for the candidate of the APC in the forthcoming governorship election in the state, Senator Andy Uba, promising to work for his victory on November 6.

The newest entrants are former Speaker of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Barr Rita Maduagwu and an ex-Minister of State for transportation, Mr John Emeka.

While Maduagwu joined APC from the APGA, Emeka joined from the PDP, during a reception organised for Senator Joy Emodi at her Onitsha residence by the APC leadership in the state.

Also, the state PDP compère, Chris Chikwelu, former PDP governorship aspirant, Chuma Nzeribe and scores of PDP members from Onitsha North, Onitsha South, Ayamelum and Anambra East local government areas of the state as well as some Hausa and Yoruba communities in Onitsha joined APC.

Receiving the defectors, the state chairman of APC, Chief Basil Ejidike, commended their decision, stating that belonging to a party at the centre was the right way to go.

He said, ”We are not going to leave any stone unturned in our bid to win the Anambra governorship election because Anambra is the South-East political engine.”

Senator Emodi who spoke on behalf of the defectors said, “This is the time for the Igbo to join politics at the centre. We should join hands to make Nigeria great and there is no other way to do it than to work with the party at the centre.

“I don’t have any fear that APC will win the November 6 governorship election; and by the grace of God, with the quality of politicians from different parties joining the fray, it will happen”.

Addressing the defectors, the APC governorship candidate in the November poll, Senator Andy Uba, said the party would win the election free, fair and square.

“We will work hard to win this election. We will run issue-based campaigns to win the election free, fair and square.”
