Ahead of the November 6 guber election, the Deputy Governor of Anambra State, Dr. Nkem Okeke has defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The Eastern Updates reports that President Muhammadu Buhari received the deputy governor on Wednesday at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Okeke was led to the President by the APC Caretaker Committee Chairman and Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, and Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma.

Governor Uzodinma briefed State House correspondents shortly after the new APC member was presented to the President.

He is confident that there will be more defections to the ruling party before the November 6 governorship election to be conducted by the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) in Anambra State.

The governor, however, faulted that claims by Governor Willi Obiano of Anambra that members of the State House of Assembly who defected from the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) were financially induced to join the ruling party.

He stressed that rather than enticing the lawmakers with money, they were lobbied through persuasion and counselling.
