Anambra Rerun: APC Explains Why Defecting Senator Ekwunife Was Dumped

A committee set up by the All Progressives Congress to screen aspirants for the Anambra Central senatorial seat, yesterday disqualified Senator Uche Ekwunife, who was occupying the seat on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party until her election was annulled by the appellate court.

The Osita Okechukwu-led committee disqualified Ekwunife on the ground that she was found “ineligible,” while Sharon Ikeazor, the former interim Women Leader of the party was handed the ticket.

The committee while explaining the reason for Ekwunife’s disqualification said, “She joined the party barely two weeks ago. The committee members each scoring independently scored the aspirant below the pass mark of 51 points.

Most importantly, our deep concern is her record which shows that she dumps political parties at will leaving the parties in its wake factionalised. She jumped from the PDP to APGA to PPA, back to PDP or vice versa and now to APC.

She is more or less a fair-weather hen.”
