The Deputy Governor of Anambra state, Nkem Okeke, has decamped to the All Progressive Congress (APC) from the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

Okeke defected to APC at the presidential villa, Abuja, on Wednesday.

He was presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by Mai Mala Buni, Yobe state governor, and Hope Uzodinma, the Imo state governor.

Okeke’s defection comes less than a month to the November 6 governorship election in Anambra.

Willie Obiano, Anambra governor, had recently alleged that members of in the state house of assembly were induced to join APC.


The governor said some of the lawmakers were given N100 million each to defect.

“Any time, any day, there’s no other party in Anambra. Only APGA, there’s no APC,” he had said.

“Those people that went to APC, they went to collect money because they saw the additional money, N100 million each, they are still APGA, they are giving us information on what is happening in APC.”
