Ex-Senate President Senator Ken Nnamani has been appointed the leader of the Igbos in All Progressive Congress, APC.
The appointment of Senator Nnamani, who recently dumped the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the ruling party, All Progressive Congress, APC, was made known by Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha.
Gov. Okorocha said Senator Nnamani’s appointment was part of resolutions during the meeting of APC leaders, who hailed from South East, which he hosted.
“Now that Igbo leaders are together in APC, Nigerians will hear us. There is a vacuum of leadership in the South-East APC. I am a governor. My brothers Chris Ngige and Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu are Ministers. Hence the importance of Ken Nnamani coming at this time. I decline the leadership of Ndi-Igbo in APC. With Ken Nnamani, the question of who is the leader of APC in the South-East has been answered. Ken Nnamani is the leader of APC in the South-East.
“Senator Nnamani should then work with other leaders like Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Jim Nwobodo and a host of others to give Ndi-Igbo political direction. Those who have joined the party or who want to join should do so to build the party and not to cause confusion. APC is the right party for the Igbo, and the only party that can guarantee Igbo presidency,” Okorocha said after the meeting held behind closed doors.
He added that the leaders have resolved to support President Mohammadu Buhari. for second term.
His word, “We are going to support President Mohammadu Buhari for the eight years he is going to lead the nation. This is the time for Ndi-Igbo to come and work together. We are also going to use the Anambra election to show that APC has arrived South-East. The Igbo played bad politics in 2015. Today, we have lost a lot. We are not anywhere because of our bad politics.”
