The Anambra State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has elected Mr. Basil Ejidike as its new chairman.
Mr. Ejidike was elected during the party’s congress in the state. Elected alongside Ejidike were lfeanyi Osegbue( Deputy Chairman), Chidi Orji (Secretary), Calista Nwachukwu (Treasurer )and Chukwunonso Chinwuba (Legal Adviser).
The congress, which was witnessed by a committee set up by the national leadership of the party, led by Hon Friday Nwanozie Nwosu, conducted the election through a voice vote, affirming Ejidike and members of his immediate past executive.
Speaking shortly before the election, Nwosu said the seven-man committee was sent by the national leadership of the APC to conduct the election.
“This is the authentic congress mandated by the national leadership of APC for this exercise. If you hear of any other gathering other than this one for the same purpose, it is because people have a right to meet, but they do not have the consent of the party”, Nwosu said.
Hon. Chinedu Eluomuno, a former member of the House of Representatives thereafter moved a motion for the affirmation of Basil Ejidike and his executives, and was seconded by Hon. Charles Ezeani, a former member of the House of Assembly in Anambra State.
Ejidike in his acceptance speech on behalf of himself and other elected members of the executive committee, said:
“I stand to accept my election as chairman. I’m overwhelmed by joy on the decision to make us your leaders. We accept the daunting task; we will not betray the confidence bestowed on us.
Noting thhat the essence of political party is to win elections and advance the cause of their environment, he said members of the party shod come together to do just that.
“We will begin another round of electioneering soon, and it is a wake up call for us to lead our party to victory and dominate the national assembly with our members from the state. Today we have emerged as one firm family ready to surmount every obstacle. Let’s bury the hatchet of yesterday and achieve the best for us”, Ejidike added.
He thanked Senator Andy Uba, who said has rescued and repositioned the party in Anambra State for his uncommon commitment towards moving the party forward.
