ABUJA – National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun has counselled the Igbos of South East Nigeria to join the party, saying it is the surest pathway of having a president of Igbo extraction.
He spoke Thursday in Abuja when he inaugurated the party’s 48-member campaign council for the Anambra elections.
“We must change the narrative in the south east and we must start with Anambra because the APC represents the most viable root for any south east person to the presidency of this country”, he said.
He also welcomed the former Deputy National Chairman to the Modu Sherrif led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Dr Cairo Ojougbo to the party, saying his presence in the committee showed that he has a lot to contribute to the development of the party.
