The Abia State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has claimed the party’s chances ahead of the 2023 General Elections has risen following the entrance of former Chief of Army Staff, retired Lt.-Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika, into APC.
The State Chairman of the party, Donatus Nwankpa, made this known while interacting over the phone with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Umuahia on Wednesday.
According to Nwankpa, “That the former Army chief has graciously joined the most populous party in Nigeria and Africa has given added impetus to APC in Abia and entire country.
“It is a huge success because it will help to strengthen our party ahead of the 2023 general elections in Abia.
“Our chances of capturing the Abia governorship seat in the 2023 general elections have further been enhanced by the general’s membership.”
Nwankpa, therefore, urged residents to take advantage of the ongoing exercise to register and revalidate their membership of the party.
Recall that Ihejirika on Tuesday registered at Ezere Ward 2 in Isuikwuato Local Government Area of the state by the Ward Chairman, Mr Iheanyi Chukwu.
