“I am grateful for the support and participation of everyone who attended the event, and I am confident that the empowerment tools distributed will have a positive impact on our Senatorial District. I look forward to organizing more events like this in the future to continue empowering and uplifting our people.

Meanwhile, the National Chairman of the APC, Dr Ganduje had, during the programme, expressed that the South East region had a significant opportunity to claim the presidency during the tenure of Dr Alex Ekwueme, a distinguished figure from the zone, who served as Vice President.

He emphasized the importance of the South East aligning with the ruling APC and electing governors from the party across all five states in the region.

Ganduje recalled that during Ekwueme’s Vice Presidency under Shehu Shagari, that there was a strong indication that he could have succeeded Shagari, had the military not intervened.

Ganduje highlighted the significance of political alignment with the ruling party to overcome marginalization, citing Ekwueme’s missed opportunity as a poignant example.

The APC Chairman commended the overwhelming turnout at the empowerment rally, expressing optimism about the South East’s readiness to actively engage in mainstream politics. He lauded Senator Ubah’s efforts and popularity in Anambra as instrumental in mobilizing support for APC’s agenda in the region.
