Opinion: How APC May Capture Southeast In 2023 General Election

The All Progressives Congress APC may not encounter Problems in 2023 Presidential Election in Southwest. APC Leaders in Southeast have done wonderful job, to win the heart of the Leaders of the opposition Party into APC, before the 2023 General Election. It should be recalled that the main Opposition Party, Peoples Democratic Party PDP are in charge of Southeast, since 1999.

However, with the Performance of the Chairman, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention And Planning Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni in APC, The Party stands better to win the whole of Southeast in 2023 General Election. Presently, the Party has the control of Imo and Ebonyi States.

Meanwhile, Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, won the Governorship Election under the Platform of APC in 2019, without stress. He took the mantle of Leadership from the former Governor of the State, Rochas Okorocha in the State. Therefore, APC Presently has the control of Imo State and the Party may not find it difficult to win the future elections in the State. The Party has been in charge of Power in the State, since 2015 Governorship election.

However, the Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi defected from PDP to APC in his State last year. The Governor gave the reason why he defected to APC. He said he dumped PDP because the Southeast has been marginalized by the Party, since 1999. Though, the Governor of Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Wike challenged Governor Umahi that he dumped the PDP for APC because of his Presidential Ambition, which he may not achieve in PDP.

Umahi's defection to APC may help in the State to win the forthcoming Governorship election. Meanwhile, the Deputy Governor of Anambra State, Nkem Okeke recently dumped his Party, All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA for APC and his defection to APC may give the Party, huge edge to win the forthcoming Governorship election in the State.

If APC could be able to win Anambra State in the forthcoming Governorship election, Then the Party will capture three States I. Southeast, which are Imo, Ebonyi and Anambra States, respectively. Presently, APC has the control of two States, out of the Five States in Southeast. Therefore, APC may win more states in Southeast in the forthcoming Governorship and Presidential elections.
