Anambra Poll: APGA Council Chairman, 10 Ward Chairmen Defect To APC

The Chairman of Awka North Local Government Area under the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Hon. Uzoma Mbonu, 10 ward chairmen, and other members of their executive have defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Anambra State.

This is coming less than 48 hours to the governorship election in Anambra State.

The defectors were received into the APC by the governorship candidate, Senator Andy Uba at an event which was held at Central School, Ebenebe, in Awka North LGA.

Uba. who assured residents of Awka, the state capital, that his administration will restore the original master plan of the town, if elected on November 6 also decried the deplorable state of infrastructure across Awka Municipal, saying: “Awka has been robbed of its glory by previous administrations in the state.”

According to Him, none of the previous administrations has paid meaningful attention to the development of the state capital and the satellite towns around it.

He said: “It is sad to note that more than 30 years after the creation of our dear state, our capital town is not reflective of who we are as Ndi Anambra.

“Although we are nationally and internationally regarded as an educationally advantaged state with innovative and industrious citizens to boot, the neglect of our capital town of Awka, especially by the outgoing Governor Willy Obiano administration, remains a poor reflection of who we really are.

“Besides the last-minute attempt by the APGA government to hoodwink our people with an airport project, Governor Obiano, in seven years, did not construct, reconstruct, or rehabilitate any road in the capital city.”

“Yet, Awka, by reason of its status as the capital of Anambra State, remains our common heritage and so deserves close attention year in, year out.

“But because of Governor Obiano administration’s refusal to develop Awka Municipal, infrastructure in the state capital has collapsed, leaving residents spending endless man-hours on avoidable traffic congestions.

“As your governor, I will make Awka a focal point of my administration. And in doing so, we shall develop the satellite communities as a strategic plan to decongest Awka town and make it really livable.”

Politics Hub Nigeria recalls that a United States-based research and political risk consultancy firm, Hallmark International Consulting Company, has tipped Senator Andy Uba to win the November 6, 2021 governorship election in Anambra State.

His candidature has enticed many top politicians to defect to the APC. It is unclear if these defections will translate into his eventual victory on Saturday.
