The candidate who vied for House of Representatives seat for the Idemili Federal Constituency under the platform of the Young Peoples Party (YPP), in the 2023 National Assembly elections, Stanley Okeke, has dumped the party.

He resigned, citing equity and Governor Soludo’s performance in Anambra.

Okeke, who is better known among friends and well-wishers as “Ugbo”, announced this during a meeting with stakeholders and his supporters from across Idemili federal constituency, at his Nkpor country home at the weekend.

Okeke expressed gratitude to all especially his supporters for their unalloyed loyalty and steadfastness over the years.

He thanked them specially for sticking with him through thick and thin and at times when “ it appeared all hope was lost.”

The business man cum politician assured them that he would continue to reciprocate their support and loyalty, stating that the bond he has with them will continue to grow in leaps and bounds.

Okeke said, “After very extensive consultations across board, I wish to announce my resignation as a member of the Young Peoples Party(YPP).

“I thank the leadership of the party for their support over the years. However, the dynamics of Anambra politics necessitate that I move on at this point and support collective decisions that enhance the growth of our state.

”I believe in equity and fairness, and this has informed my position to support the Anambra zoning arrangement.

“This is why I have pleaded with all concerned, especially my brothers in Anambra Central, to support Gov. Soludo to see out his second term as Governor.

“It has become a tradition in Anambra for all zones to see out their eight years in governance. Peter Obi from Anambra Central did eight years, which was followed by Willy Obiano from Anambra North for another eight years.

“It is only proper that Gov. Soludo from Anambra South completed his two terms.

“Gov. Soludo has done veritably well, made better that he is yet to take loans. His footprint in Onitsha and its environs has been magnificent.

“In the last two decades, the commercial centre of the South East, Onitsha, was allowed to go to ruins, thankfully Gov. Soludo is correcting that.

“I plead with him to extend this to Nkpor, which is also a commercial centre in ruins and also to the whole of Idemili in whose abode many markets in Anambra seat.”

He, however, assured his teeming supporters that he would soon unveil his next political move after due consultation, noting that the final outcome of his consultation would put Anambra first.
