Action Congress of Nigeria, Anambra Chapter is not averse to the personal decision of Mr Ferdinand Dozie Nwankwo to relocate his political career to a platform where he can work for the presidential ambition of his brother-in-law and governor of Rivers State Mr Rotimi Amaechi in the forthcoming 2015 elections.
We are proud that his invitation to selected ACN party faithfuls and supporters to join him in his new forte-The PDP wing of APGA was roundly rejected at a private home in Enugwu –Ukwu just before Mr Nwankwo’s lonely movement and that our members told him the home that Politics goes beyond electioneering.
It is instructive that in the pitiable rally in which Mr Nwankwo crossed the carpet for the second time in two years, Hon Mrs Uche Ekwunife with whom she fought a two-year battle was decidedly absent along with all the members of the House of Representatives Caucus. It is also noteworthy that the only Senator in APGA produced by APGA in 2011 elections did not attend.
It is even more critical that only Hon Mrs Chinwe Nwaebili, positional speaker of the Anambra State House of Assembly, yet to rise to the occasion of checking the executive, along with her colourless deputy that attended out of 18 in the house.
But most significantly, another rally of the same party with greater attendance was taking place in Emmaus House, Awka, barely three kilometres away.
Consequently, we are proud that no member of ACN left with Mr Nwankwo or joined the selected APGA-PDP members, and known members of foundation who were shamelessly called out to line up behind Mr Nwankwo on Saturday as supporters.
As a party we celebrate these steadfast supporters, who have been our pillar in Njikoka, Dunukofia and Anaocha and are geared up to rebuild and upgrade our structures around them in order to deliver to Anambra State, the goodness contained in our manifestoes hat less ondowed states have enjoyed.
We also celebrate the end of the Necodemus Politics that found its way into that prime constituency in the heat of 2011 elections and are committed to redirecting and priming our structures back to the same standards with the rest of our great party in Anambra State, using the heroic human pillars we have appreciated above and numerous others in incubation.
Once again we thank the people of Njikoka- Dunukofia-Anaocha Federal constituency for their unalloyed support for our great party which is in transition with other great parties to a mega-party called All Progressive Congress (APC) on which we shall deliver good governance to a state on its knees, begging to be governed.
