The defection of an Anambra deputy governor is of little importance, according to the APGA.

The defection of Dr. Nkem Okeke, the Deputy Governor of Anambra State, to the All Progressives Congress has had no impact on the party’s fortunes, according to the All Progressives Grand Alliance.

This was said in a press statement issued by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Tex Okechukwu, in Abuja on Wednesday, captioned “Defection of Nkem Okeke Of No Consequence.”

The deputy’s defection was long expected, according to the party, because he had a grievance against the APGA for failing to secure the governorship ticket for the November 6th election.

“The deputy governor had thought that the governor and the party were going to hand over the governorship ticket of the party in the previous primary to him on a silver platter,” the statement stated in part.

“When that didn’t happen, he began acting strangely, even to the point of insubordination and duty dereliction.”

The exit of the deputy governor without formal communication to the party or his principal, according to Okechukwu, was ill-timed and ill-advised because the governor had always treated him with respect, love, and concern.

He noted that APGA disapproved of the opposition APC’s desperation in the run-up to the November 6 Anambra State Governorship Election, and urged all members of the party to remain united in order for APGA to win by greater majorities.
