The entire Anambra political landscape literally shook to the ground on Wednesday 13th October 2021 as the political contour of Anambra state took a surprise turn with a big bang.
It was the story that the Deputy governor of Anambra State Dr Nkem Okeke,who deputised for Dr Willie Obiano of Anambra State under the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA)has for real,defected to the All Progressives Congress,an ominous sign that is not in the interest of the APGA.
As if it was not enough,the Senator representing Anambra North Senatorial District, Senator Princess Stella Oduah,rocked the boat harder when thesame day,13th October,she collapsed her entire structure into Senator Andy Uba Campaign Organisation to ensure his victory on November 6.
It would be recalled that Senator Oduah has a firm grip of Anambra North Senatorial District where she has bulldozed her way to second tenure against all odds.
While collapsing her structure to Andy Uba,more than 6000 representatives of all the NGOs and support groups of Senator Stella Oduah converged at the All Saints Cathedral hall to express their solidarity.
In a statement which I monitored from the venue,members of Senator Oduah Support Group resolved among other things;
to support and show complete loyalty to Senator Oduah,commended her for her effective representation of the Zone at the senate.
They commended her for the various employment programmes she attracted to the Senatorial Zone since she assumed office as the Senator representing the Zone.
The support group pointed out that “in line with the current development of her progression from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC)we hereby declare our support and loyalty to her and we resolve to follow her to APC”
The groups endorsed the candidature of Senator Andy Uba and enjoined all supporters of Senator Oduah in the 7 local government areas under Anambra North Senatorial Zone to vote for and support Senator Andy Uba to be the next governor of Anambra State come November 6 2021.
Senator Stella Oduah was represented on the ocassion by her Chief of Staff,Princess Nwaka Ononuju and other principal staff of Princess Stella Oduah Support groups.
Meanwhile,President Buhari has handed over APC flag to Dr Nkem Okeke in a brief ceremony at the Presidential Villa,Abuja.
