Former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, has boasted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will take over the five states in the South-East region in the 2023 general election.
Only Imo and Ebonyi are under the control of the APC in the South East currently.
Nnamani, a member of the APC national caretaker committee representing the South-East, speaking during a zonal stakeholders’ meeting in Enugu on Thursday, said all hands must be on deck for the party to win all the five south-east states.
He also warned against those portraying APC as anti-Igbo, saying the notion has consistently affected the party’s success in the south-east.
Nnamani said the party would not accommodate those indulging in anti-party activities.
In August, the former senate president had said he was ashamed that the APC has underachieved in Enugu, his home state.
Nnamani defected to the APC from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2017.
Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, the governor of Enugu, was elected on the platform of the PDP in 2015 and was re-elected for a second term in office in 2019.
