APGA counters Senator Ubah’s push for Anambra to join APC



APGA Rejects Senator Ubah's APC Proposal, Affirms Anambra Control

The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has responded to Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s recent remarks, dismissing his plea for Anambra State to unite with the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2025 gubernatorial election.

Ubah, a senator representing Anambra South and an APC member, argued that Anambra should “connect to the centre” by joining the party in the 2019 election.

He emphasised the need for the state to shift its allegiance from opposition parties to the ruling APC.

In response, APGA spokesperson Tony Olisa-Mbeki denied Ubah’s involvement and maintained the organisation’s dominance in the state.

He emphasised that Ubah “cannot deliver Anambra to the APC” and cited the APGA’s track record of state governance.

Mbeki emphasised that Anambra’s growth under APGA leadership has been demonstrated by developmental efforts implemented by former and current governors.

He questioned the necessity of collaborating with the APC for development, given the state’s accomplishments under APGA leadership.

Ubah’s words sparked outrage because Anambra has long been a stronghold for the APGA, which has governed the state since 2006.

APGA’s statement demonstrates the party’s intention to maintain control in the 2019 election, denying Ubah’s comments about the importance of joining the APC for development.
