Mr Emeka Ojukwu jnr, son of the founder of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, has dumped the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He made his declaration on Wednesday in Awka, at the grand finale campaign of the APC candidate for the Anambra 2017 governorship election, Dr Tony Nwoye.
According to him, his decision to join the party was to protect the interest of the Igbos.
He said, “It is time to leave the shadows for light. Every now and then, they come out with my father’s shadow to confuse the people”. “APGA is a means to an end but not an end itself”.
President Muhammadu Buhari, APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, 12 APC governors, National Assembly members in the party, among other party big wigs, witnessed the event.
