The All Progressives Congress in Anambra State on Sunday named Dr. Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Productivity, as the state chairman of the Dr. Tony Nwoye 2017 Governorship Campaign Organisation.
Ngige is to be assisted by Chief George Muoghalu as vice chairman.
More than 50 other persons were named as chairmen and vice chairmen of various directorates of the campaign organisation by the party.
Emeka Ibe, the Anambra State Chairman of the APC, who announced the membership before inaugurating the committee, charged them to commit their time and resources to the success of Nwoye’s governorship project.
Ibe said the party has a capable candidate that would make history in the November 18 governorship election in the state.
All the aspirant for the Anambra State governorship race, except Senator Andy Uba, were named as members of the campaign organisation.
Osita Ezenwa, the Director-General of the Nwoye Campaign Organisation, commended the composition of the various sub-committees.
Ezenwa said there was a lot of work to be done and added that the party would make the desired change in the governance of Anambra State.
He said: “We must all work hard and together in the task of seeing to the success of our candidate, Dr. Tony Nwoye, in the November 18 election so that on November 19 we all will rejoice that we have finally won.”
The National Secretariat of the APC had earlier named Governor Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi State as the national chairman of Nwoye Campaign Organisation.
