A disqualified former Anambra State gubernatorial aspirant of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) Nze Akachukwu Nwankpo has formally joined the African Democratic Congress (ADC) to continue his pursuit for the 2021 governorship Election.
Recall that Nze Akachukwu Nwankpo who was the former SA to President Goodluck Jonathan has in recent time, in a press release from his media office said that he has accepted the disenfranchisement rule by APGA.
In the Press Release seen by 9News Nigeria, Hon Akachukwu Nwankpo said that he has accepted his former political party APGA’s decision of disqualifying him from contesting in the last governorship primaries after laying claims that the governor told him that the party has optioned for Soludo.
This latest announcement of Hon Akachukwu Nwankpo’s defection from APGA to the African Democratic Party (ADC) may come as a surprise to the political space but there was a strong indication that the Ihiala born politician has been in talks with the ADC’s leadership for too long before now.
APGA Governorship primaries held on June 23rd 2021 produced former CBN Governor, Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo as the candidate for Anambra State governorship election coming up in November 6th 2021.
Recall that on the day of the APGA primaries that was held at the Prof. Dora Akunyili Women Development Center, Awka, a faction of the party issued a notice that Prof. Charles Soludo has been disqualified from taking part in the party’s primaries.
However, Governor Willie Obiano’s faction with the official mandate and supervision of the INEC proceeded to conduct the party primaries and Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo was declared the winner.
