Former PDP Bigwigs Get APC Appointments
These politicians used to hold up the umbrella to shout 'power to the people', but now they hold brooms and scream "CHANGE!"
Their defection from the People's Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) seems to be paying off.
Former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, a former governor of Enugu State, Sullivan Chime, and a former governor of the old Anambra State, Jim Nwobodo have been appointed into the Enugu caucus of the All Progressives Congress.
Other members of the caucus, which was inaugurated at the APC secretariat, include a former Speaker of the Enugu State House of Assembly, Eugene Odoh, Foreign Affairs Minister, Jeffrey Onyeama, a former military governor of Gombe State, Group Capt. Joe Orji, Director General of Voice of Nigeria, Osita Okechukwu, and a former secretary to Enugu State Government, Onyemauche Nnamani.
The APC chairman in Enugu State, Ben Nwoye, who also heads the caucus, said the inauguration of the body has positioned the party to win the 2019 general election in the state.
Nwoye described the members of the caucus as ‘great men and women’.
