When contacted yesterday, the APC state Chairman -Ibe confirmed they have all obtained membership cards having been duly registered as members of the party.

According to him, "...our party the APC is doing very well in the state.  We are doing exploits here. Many people are coming into the party daily and indicating interests. But I must make it clear that we don’t have any anointed candidate or special interest in any of the aspirants."

Dr Ubah who attended a social event along with some women group, his supporters was said to have successfully registered with Chief Akomas team around midnight and stealthily left for Abuja early morning of Saturday, Jan 28,2017.

Akomas also addressed  a cross-section of young nominees for the
registration exercise at a training session organized by the party in Awka  yesterday, where he noted that, "...although there is a preponderance of APC member here, I seize this moment to also tell the youth in Anambra what I am telling you here- to be firm, dedicated, creative, steadfast and honest in every little assignment they are given, because with time, it begins to signpost you and recommend you.

About 652 registrants, 63 local government supervisors, three zonal co-ordinators , which will support a five-man national committee
under his leadership attended the training session.

The membership registration, according to Akomas covers new members, while old members are to undergo membership re validation for purpose of
obtaining data-loaded identity cards.

The exercise billed to last one week from Wednesday, in the first instance, a source noted, became necessary because the data base of the zone was corrupted.
