The All Progressive Congress (APC), has selected 180 delegates to represent the Anambra State Chapter of the party at the coming National Convention on Saturday.
The delegates are drawn from the 21 local government areas and their names were announced at the state party secretariat in Awka on Wednesday evening by the State Chairman, Sir Basil Ejidike
Ejidike announced the names during the inauguration of the state zonal and local government executive committees.
He said, ‘The delegates were selected according to APC Constitution, from the state exco, LGA executive and political office holders.’
While congratulating the newly inaugurated state officers, Ejidike, said, ‘I wish to restate and draw your attention to the essence of a political party. All political parties’ interest is to win elections and advance the cause of their environment.
‘The APC has all it takes to achieve this and more. Therefore, we must all put our hands on deck to reposition the party, and as well win elections.
‘This is achievable in Anambra, being that we have both the human and material resources needed. As a new family, we are poised to galvanize and harness our diverse potentials and resources to put our party in political positions in our dear state.
‘It is indeed factual that the APC-led Federal Government has benefitted Anambra State and people in terms of infrastructural development, human capacity building and empowerment.
‘These have reposed on us all the onerous task of leading the people of Anambra into the mainstream politics of Nigeria. This, we must accomplish.
‘In a very special way, I appreciate the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency Muhamadu Buhari, GCFR, for his giant developmental strides in Anambra State.’
