Former Governor of Anambra State, Chris Ngige, has said that
the All Progressives Congress, APC, will take over power from the ruling All
Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in Anambra in 2025.
Ngige, the immediate past Minister of Labour and Employment,
said this on Saturday while speaking to newsmen at his home in Alor, Idemili
South Local Government Area of Anambra State.
Ngige noted that there are two factions of the party in the
state but maintained that the situation would not be a problem when the next
governorship election comes up in 2025.
He said: “Of course, there is APC 1 and [there is] APC 2 in
the state. I will not deny that. I am both the father and face of APC in
Anambra. I am certain that some newcomers have joined us since 2021.
“Party is like a church in which you do not stop people from
entering; you do not stop people from entering the party to look for salvation
or to support the government in power.
“But the challenge is that the new entrants do not want to
reckon with old members who have laboured for the party. The old members
laboured for the party from the time we were in the Social Democratic Party,
SDP, to Advanced Congress of Democrats, ACD, to Action Congress, AC, to Action
Congress of Nigeria, ACN, and finally birthed as APC.”
