Senator Uche Ekwunife set to join APC, See details
Anambra Senator Set to Join APC, Fuelling Political Speculations.
In a move that could reshape the political landscape in Anambra, a former Senator representing Anambra Central senatorial district is reportedly on the brink of officially joining the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) this Friday, barring any unforeseen changes.
Sources close to the seasoned lawmaker revealed to Anambra People that her alignment with the APC is a strategic step to solidify her political ambitions.
Speculations abound regarding her potential motives within the party, with unconfirmed rumours suggesting her interest in vying as Senator Ifeanyi Uba’s running mate in the upcoming 2025 Anambra off-season gubernatorial election.
At 52, Ekwunife, despite a setback in the 2023 general elections where she recontested for her Senate seat but lost to Senator Victor Umeh of the Labour Party, remains a prominent political figure. Her current role as the Director-General of the Southeast Governors’ Forum adds weight to her influence.
Ekwunife’s political journey has seen her serve as a member of the House of Representatives from 2007 to 2015, establishing a track record that continues to shape her political trajectory.
As the anticipated move unfolds on Friday, political analysts keenly observe the potential ripple effects on the local political arena. The prospect of her alliance with the APC and its implications for the 2025 Anambra gubernatorial election adds an intriguing dimension to the unfolding political narrative.
