Sacked PDP Senator Ekwunife Defects To APC Ahead Rerun Elections
Sackes Senator Uche Ekwunife, who represented Anambra Central Senatorial District on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Friday announced that she had defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ekwunife’s election as Senator was nullified by Appeal Court in Enugu on December 6 2015, on grounds of irregularities.
The court ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a fresh election in the zone within 90 days.
The sacked Senator while announcing her defection to the APC to newsmen in Awka, Anambra 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 the people of Anambra Central District,” she said.
