By Celestine Okeh, Abakaliki

The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress APC in Ebonyi State, Chief Stanley Okoro Emegha said, the APC is open to welcoming all defectors from other political parties into it's fold, reiterating his stand on guaranteeing equal treatment to all.

Chief Okoro Emegha  echoed this at Isiaka, Ivo Local Government headquarters during a defection rally to welcome over three thousand loyalists of former secretary to the Government of the federation, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim from the PDP led by the former member of House of Representatives, Hon. Livinus Makwe and handful of labour party defectors led by the LP Deputy Governorship Candidate for 2023 General Election, Prince Igwe Nwabueze and others from National Rescue Movement (NRM)

Emegha assured the defectors of equal treatment noting that there are still more rooms to accommodate anyone with genuine intention of joining APC.

The APC boss, Emegha commended the state Governor, for stirring the massive wave of defection through his all inclusive administration which has impacted positively on citizens and visitors alike in less than a year in office. 

"I'm interested in winning more souls for our party and that's why I still go about asking people to join us so that they can enjoy what we are enjoying. The person you didn't work with today, you might work with tomorrow. Let's all forget the past and forgive each other. The party is open to all and we need more people". 

"There is no reason for opposition since our God given governor (Right Honourable (Dr) Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru) is working more than expected and has been making Ebonyians happy with good leadership. One party system is fine when there's good leadership. You can only oppose when we have a bad leader. Ebonyi is blessed with the best governor and that's why opposition members have been collapsing their parties to support Nwifuru led government", Chief Emegha stated.

On his part, the Ivo council Chairman, Chief Emmanuel Ajah said, Ivo is better united under APC, expressing delight over the development. He assured them that no one will be discriminated against as everyone has his or her own role to play in making Ivo and Ebonyi State better.

In their separate speeches, Chief Livinus Makwe and Igwe Nwabueze on behalf of other defectors, thanked the council Chairman Chief Emmanuel Ajah for his open mindedness, stressing that since he came onboard as the council Chairman, he has been carrying all the stakeholders along, irrespective of party affiliation. He commended the state APC Chairman, Chief Stanley Okoro Emegha and mostly importantly, the leader of the party in the state, Governor Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru for his all-inclusive administration which he said, has made them to join the party. He assured that they are going to join hands with the party to move to state to greater heights.

He noted with great delight, the numerous achievements of the Governor in the state among whom, is the peace they are enjoying in Ivo today, which he said has never been like that in recent past.

There were good will messages from Stakeholders, party leaders, youths and women groups.
