Leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South-east geo-political zone, including the National Vice Chairman and State Chairmen, have hailed the appointment of Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, to lead and coordinate the activities of the party in the Southeast to further penetrate and consolidate political control of the region.

Uzodimma was yesterday named as one of the six coordinators of APC matters in the six geo-political zones of the country in the party’s bid to strengthen as well as further spread its support base across the country.The APC state chairmen, who pledged absolute loyalty and support to Governor Uzodimma, commended the national leadership of the party for appointing him in recognition of his roles to make the APC which was hitherto unknown in the Southeast to now become a major and leading political platform in the region. The party leaders in a congratulatory and solidarity message signed by the National Vice Chairman (Southeast) Dr. Ijeomah Arodiogbu, and Anambra State party Chairman, Chief Basil Ejidike, on behalf of the five South-east state chairmen yesterday asserted that Governor Uzodimma was appointed to lead the party’s charge in the region as a result of “his acceptability and popularity which cut across the various segments of the population in the region.”

The APC leaders also emphasized that the governor was chosen because of his “deep understanding of the social and political nuances of the region and exceptional capacity for party mobilisation.

“We commend the national leadership of our great party for appointing Governor Uzodimma to lead our party’s charge in the Southeast. It is clear that this is in recognition of Governor Uzodimma’s relentless roles in mobilising support and building the APC which was hitherto unknown in the region to now become a major and leading political party in the region.

“Because of Governor Uzodimma’s exceptional capacity for political mobilisation as well as his performance in office, other political parties are now dissolving into the APC in the Southeast.

“Already, influential political leaders, including former state governors, former ministers, ambassadors, national and state legislators, local government chairmen, councillors as well as youth groups, who were hitherto in other political parties are now pouring into the APC in the Southeast as a result of the leadership direction being provided by Governor Uzodimma with the support of Governor Francis Nwifuru of Ebonyi State.”
