The All Progressives Congress in Anambra State is getting enlarged as supporters of opposition parties are beginning to identify with it.

In Egwuisigo and Njikoka Local Government Area, the party received over 500 decampees from the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA and the United Progressives Party, including the former chairman of the Board of Trustees, Mr. George Ozodinobi.

The APC governorship candidate, Senator Chris Ngige described the action as a positive development and an enhancement to aspiration of the party to win the governorship election.

Supporters of the All Progressives Congress and residents of the different communities in Njikoka Local Government Area received the Ngige campaign train at Abagana, one of the major towns in the area.

β€œThe big surprise of the day is the official presentation of the former chairman of the board of trustees of the United Progressives Party, George Ozodinobi, who recently led hundreds of his followers to join forces with the APC. Ozodinobi is an indigene of Njikoka.

The Ngige campaign organisation also received 11 sienna buses from Mr. Ozodinobi to boost its campaign activities.

The campaign team got a rousing reception at Oraifite, Ekwuisigo, where Senator Chris Ngige handed over the party’s symbol to members who left the All Progressives Grand Alliance for the APC.

One of the biggest decampees from the community is honourable Azuka Okwosa, former senatorial candidate from APGA and a close ally to the founder of APGA, late Chukwuemeka Ojokwu.

Senator Ngige met with traditional rulers from Anambra North Senatorial District to formally inform them of his ambition, and to be briefed on the areas of their needs.

The team also visited Achalla, Idemili North Local Government Area, where it wound up its activities for the day. Although they arrived late, residents surged out in large numbers to welcome them.
