The former minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, says the APC will take over power from the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra in 2025.

Ngige, a former governor of Anambra said this  on Saturday while speaking to newsman at his home in Alor, Idemili South Local Government Area, during the distribution of  palliatives to party members, persons with disabilities and the aged.

He admitted that APC had two factions in the state but said the division would not stop the party from winning the 2025 governorship election as aggrieved members would be pacified before the election.

“Of course there is APC 1 and APC 2 in the state. I will not deny that. I am both the father and face of APC in Anambra. I am certain that there are some new comers who have joined  us since 2021.

“Because the party is like a church which you do not stop people from entering; you do not stop people from entering the party to look for salvation or to support the  government in power.

“But the challenge is that the new entrants do not want to reckon with old members who have laboured for the party.

“The old members laboured for the party from the time we were in the  Social Democratic Party (SDP) to Advanced Congress of Democrats (ACD) to Action Congress (AC) to Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and finally birthed as APC.”
