The All Progressives Congress (APC) remains the best option for South-East to actualize its presidency aspiration in the nearest future.

No one would say this, asides a leading member of the ruling party like their National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.

As expected, it comes at a time they are getting set and hoping to win the Anambra state governorship election slated for November 18.

Oyegun inaugurated a 48-member Anambra Governorship Campaign Council ahead of the election and seized the opportunity to reach out to the south-easterners.

Odigie-Oyegun challenged the committee to work and bring the South-East into the main stream of Nigeria’s politics and into “the progressive family”.

He also charged the committee led by Bauchi State Governor, Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar, to mobilise the entire citizens of Anambra for victory.

He said that the state was very important to the APC, pointing out that a victory for the party in Anambra would help to address the cries of marginalisation in the South-East.

“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, however, expressed optimism that the party would emerge victorious in the election.

“If the APC can defeat an incumbent President, we can also defeat an incumbent governor; we have done it before in Kogi and Ondo states,” he said.
