No fewer than 2,300 members of opposition political parties in Ogbaru Council area have defected to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and pledged to work for the victory of the party at all levels in the area.
State party chairman, House of Representatives candidate, Chief Awogu and Ogbaru Chairman, Hon. Sampson Nnamdi Ifijika received the defectors who came from People’s Democratic Party (PDP), All Progressives Congress (APC), and Labour Party (LP) respectively.
This was even as the Anambra State Chairman of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Norbert Obi, appealed to the party supporters to vote candidates at all levels and positions in the forthcoming general elections.
Obi made the appeal at the residence of the candidate for Ogbaru Federal House of Representatives, Hon. Arinzechukwu Awogu, where he hosted 16 ward chairmen, secretaries and party stakeholders, urging them to work hard to ensure the emergence of the APGA candidates in the election.
He reminded them that the party has a presidential candidate, Justice Peter Umeadi, senatorial candidates, House Representatives and House of Assembly candidates, which should be supported to win their seats. Rather than voting one for another party and others in APGA, vote APGA all through because we have credible candidates,” he said.
