Senator Uche Ekwunife defects to APC

Senator Uche Ekwunife, the former senator representing Anambra Senatorial District announced on Friday that she had defected to All Progressives Congress (APC).
The senator whose election was annuled by Appeal Court in Enugu on December 6, 2015, on grounds of irregularities. The court ordered a the Independent National Election Commission (INEC) to conduct a fresh election in the zone within 90 days.
Ekwunife also confirmed her defection to newsmen in Awka. She said:
"It's better now for me to join the APC. "Let the heat be there; I am already on campaigns for my return to the senate, to complete my contract with contract with the people of Anambra Central District."
Her full statement below:
"Today, I officially joined the All Progressives Congress (APC)" her statement reads.
"You will recall that the election which returned me as your Senator was mischievously cancelled. The reason which the court adduced was that I was not duly and legitimately nominated as the PDP flag bearer for Anambra Central Senatorial election in 2015.
I also wish to let you know that a Federal High Court Abuja has Prior to this judgement upheld my candidacy in a suit filled by Chief Sylvester Okonkwo challenging the validity of my candidacy.
But then, even if I were not the valid candidate, the right thing for the court was to declare whosoever came second in the PDP Primaries as the authentic candidate and thereby replacing me as it is purely a party matter.
But the court which was FATHER CHRISTMAS granted Victor Umeh what he did not pray for, as his prayer was for the court to declare him winner of the election.
The court which has before it enough evidence that Umeh lost went ahead to nullify the election on the basis of what they called invalid primaries of the Anambra State PDP. A reason which is not strong enough to cancel the election in an appeal filled by APGA and Umeh as other political parties also contested in the election.
The questions remain:
 
i. How can invalid PDP primaries affect an election which other political parties participated in?
 
ii. Why should the invalid PDP primaries be a source of granting Umeh who took me to court the nullification of the election which other political parties (which did not go to court) participated in?
 
iii. Why was my own election the only one that was canceled when the same invalid PDP primaries produced other PDP Senators, Members of the House of Representatives as well as State Assembly Members?
 
My good people of Anambra Central, the outcome of what we witnessed was a conspiracy between some elements in PDP and the State Government who were panicking over what they referred to as my rising profile.
I am focused and my major concern is to bring back the dividends of democracy to my people. These I have done so far by:
i. Being the first woman to be appointed the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Petroleum Downstream.
 
ii. Sponsoring, moving and leading many Bills and Motions on the floor of the Senate among which is the motion on FLOOD AND EROSION DISASTER IN AWKA, ISUANAOCHA, OBOSI AND OTHER COMMUNITIES IN ANAMBRA CENTRAL.
 
iii. I also influenced and led the Senate Ad hoc Committee to Anambra State to see and have a first hand touch of what my people are experiencing.
 
iv. Partnering with the Federal Government to ensure adequate supply of petroleum products.
 
v. Assisted Seven youths to gain employment in the Federal Service since I became a Senator six months ago.
 
vi. Among others quite numerous to mention here.

Even after these minor setbacks, I advised PDP to conduct primaries in other to produce a candidate who will fly the party’s flag in the oncoming repeat election, but since then, nothing meaningful has been done as they are busy creating more confusion in the party. A confusion which will lead the party nowhere.

My good people of Anambra Central Senatorial District; taking cognizance of these developments, I took time to make wide consultations and have decided to join the All Progressive Congress (APC).
It is true some of us did not give our support to APC in the previous election, it is true you voted for me massively in PDP, but then my brothers and sisters, that seed of confusion that militated against PDP in the previous election is still inherent and may not be of any good to any people.
We Ndigbo cannot continue to be relegated from the national bargain which we are co-owners. This is the time to join forces with the Federal Government to move our country forward.
I remain your amiable lawmaker, I remain your dogged Senator, I promise to give you a much better representation. Accept the assurances of my best regards.

Shame on her and all who claimed APC is an Hausa party.
this is a lesson to all Igbos who have seen nothing good about Buhari and APC because they claimed is an Hausa-Muslim party.

Uche should say real Bye Bye to Anambra politics. She is calculating in all angles and running from a pending supreme court pronouncement coming up soon. Herself, Stella Oduah and Andy Ubah have been sitting on keg of gunpowder. Chris Ubah and Annie Okonkwo are warming up to take their rightful seats at the Senate. Ekwunife and her crew used Mama peace to bend rules before but they can't run far. She can run to Aso rock but can't be saved. Error Error Error......

I blame Nigerian youths who are the tools these selfish politicos are using to achieve their aim. No Nigeria politician is thinking about the betterment of our society, they are only thinking on how to win their next election. Many of them have started buying Keke, Motorcycle, rice and salt they will share in 2019 so that we can vote for them. Mtcheeeew,

chinedu ugwu said...

Ms Uche Ekwunife's defection to APC is typical of a desperate jobber. APC did everything to get her to step down for Sen Chris Nguge to pave way for his Senate presidency, but she refused. Now she has been disgraced out of the Senate and she is jumping to APC.... I look forward to the final disgrace at the next election.
