An All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA (APGA) governorship aspirant in Anambra State, Chukwuma Umeoji, has dumped the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

Umeoji, who is a member of the House of Representatives, had laid claim to the APGA ticket for the November 6 governorship election until a court confirmed a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof. Charles Soludo, as the party’s authentic candidate for the election.

He represents Aguata Anambra Federal Constituency in the lower legislative chamber.

The lawmaker joined the APC exactly two weeks after the Anambra State Deputy Governor, Nkem Okeke, joined the ruling party.

The Chairman of the APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee, Mai Mala Buni, confirmed the development in a statement issued last night by his Director- General, Press and Media Affairs, Mamman Mohammed.

Buni said: “APC will stand for you and your supporters, and protect your political interests at all times.

“You will enjoy every privilege enjoyed by every member of the party.”

The Yobe State governor urged Umeoji and his supporters to work for the party’s success in the election.
