Former Governor of Anambra State and immediate past Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngiges vowed to deliver the state for his party, All Progressives Congress (APC), during the 2025 Governorship Election in the state.
Ngige gave the assurance while addressing journalists at his country home in Alor, Idemili South Local Government Area of the state.
He attested to the division within the Anambra State chapter of the APC but insisted it is not enough to deny the party its unstoppable chances to defeat the ruling party in the state, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
When he was asked about the chances of APC to win the 2025 forthcoming Election in Anambra State despite the faction within the party, Chris Ngige said, “Of course, there is APC 1 and [there is] 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 some newcomers have joined us since 2021.
“Party is like a church in 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 labored for the party. The old members labored for the party from the time we were in the Social Democratic Party, SDP, to the Advanced Congress of Democrats, ACD, to Action Congress, AC, to Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, and finally birthed APC.
