Ekwunife Tipped For Deputy Senate President----APC

The chairman, All Progressive Congress APC Anambra state chapter, Barrister Emeka Ibe has assured the state of virile development programmes the party will attract if Senator Uche Ekwunife is returned to  the senate.
He was buoyed with hope that her aspiration is in line with the programme of the APC led by President Muhammadu Buhari and solicit for  people's support to ensure she is voted back into the senate.

Barrister Emeka Ibe made this known yesterday while receiving Senator Uche Ekwnuife formerly in the state chapter of APC,in Awka, maintained that the party will pull its resources with the blessing of the leader in the state, senator Chris Ngige to ensure she wins the February 16th Anambra Central rerun election in the state.
Addressing the delegation on behalf of the party, State Publicity Secretary Mr Okelo Madubuife, assured the senator of their resolve to support her ambition and ensure APC wins the Anambra central re-run election.
He said,"Once again we rehash that there is no discrimination in our party along the line of old and new membership, gender, class, creed or sore past statements in the line of politicking.

In keeping with the rules and sub-rules of our party as defined by the constitution, code of ethics, and bye-laws, will offer you a fair opportunity to compete fairly in all future aspirations.
We assure you that our party membership do not necessary have one opinion on every issue, but are propelled by an inspirational leadership that funnels divergent views into a full broom of thought pool, for which we have risen to our current level of formidability, in unison.
"Once again we heartily welcome her to her last political party and look forward to cerebral, manual   and material contributions to the further growth and development of the party".
Responding, Senator Uche Ekwnife described the party as one family that has since not divided agaisnt itself, she explained the stiff divide in the state PDP and factionilization which according to her would not deliver the good programmes she has for the people of Central senatorial zone.

Senator Ekwnnife request that the rerun should be taken with matter of seriousness, stated that the rerun is between her Senator Ekwunife and the All Progresive gRand Alliance (APGA)candidate, Chief Victor Umeh.
She promised to abide by the principles that guide the party and expressed optimism that APC is a party to beat in Anambra state because of the past achievement of the leader Chief Chris Ngige and that will be her guiding principle to strengthen the image to the benefit of the people of the state .
Ashiwaju.org however submit that, if the senator is considered to return to the senate, she will become the only  APC senator in the south east and automatically qualified to be an executive member in the APC led national assembly.
Meanwhile, senate presidency was earlier zoned to the south east, because their was no APC senator in the zone, that is why the zoning now went to North central, having a pseudo PDP deputy senate president to stand in the gap.

By all indication, APC national working committee will now have the ground to request Senate Ike Ekweremadu to vacate the seat for an APC senator from the zone, which will automatically quell the lingering squabble in the senate principal officers struggle.
Should Anambra central consider this opportunity to return Senator Uche Ekwunife to the senate, she will not only return as senate chairman on Petroleum/Downstream committee chairman but as a principal officer possibly to emerge as number five person in the Nigeria political ranking.
