Confusion hits Anambra APC, party splits into two factions ahead of 2025 governorship election

By Chidi-Ebere Moneme, South East, Nigeria

Two factions have emerged in the Anambra state chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Anambra state ahead of the governorship election in the state scheduled for 2025.

The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Anambra state is presently enmeshed in crisis over the emergence of two factions.

The crisis was first revealed by a former governor of the state and the immediate past minister of labour and employment, Senator Chris Ngige.

It was gathered by a reliable source in the camp of one of the political gladiators in the state that, Senator Chris Ngige said the party has been segregated into APC 1, consisting of foundation members and APC 2, composed of new entrants.

The party recently welcomed Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah from the Young Progressive Party and Senator Uche Ekwunife, a former Peoples Democratic Party member into its fold.

Already, there are rumours that Senator Ubah and Ekwunife are planning to team up to clinch the governorship and deputy governorship tickets of the party ahead of the 2025 governorship poll in the state.

Ngige however called for the party to unite, noting that, that is the only way to win forthcoming governorship poll in Anambra State.

Also speaking, on the matter, Dr George Moghalu, the managing director of the National Inland Water-Ways Authority (NIWA), and former National Auditor of APC, stated that we and other foundational members wont allow strangers destroy the party.

‘What this implies is that those people have not come into the APC to help build the party but just to contest election and win or lose, they will certainly leave the party and return where they were before”.

Meanwhile, there are rumours that more heavy- weights in Anambra state are preparing to join APC.
