On Friday, 1st December, 2023 Anambra political scene will witness a seismic shift and an informal change of baton following the formal entry of two political heavyweights in Anambra State, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah and Sen. Uche Ekwunife into the All Progressives Congress fold in what promises to be an era-defining moment.
Few weeks ago, the Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Distinguished Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, joined the APC on the floor of the red hallowed chamber. This political move sent shivers down the spine of Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo and the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) back home in Anambra State. Soludo immediately placed himself on 2025 campaign mode.
Soludo and the APGA hierarchy, who are yet to recover from news of Sen. Ubah’s entry into APC now have the double misfortune to contend with the anticipated entrance of Senator Uche Ekwunife into APC! This has understandably multiplied their headaches. APGA is daily witnessing a resurgent rise of the All Progressives Congress in Anambra State.
The entry of the duo of Senator Ubah and Ekwunife will drastically bolster the ranks of the APC in Anambra State and turn it to the party with the most formidable assemblage of the most progressive heavyweight politicians in Anambra. In case APGA still do not understand the shape of the new united Anambra APC that is emerging, it is necessary to briefly remind them.
