APC reneges on power rotation in Abia state
Abia state APC Chairman, Donatus Nwankpa, stated this, during his interaction with some journalist in the state.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has seemingly thwarted the rotation order of the governorship position among three Senatorial zones in Abia State.

The state APC Chairman, Donatus Nwankpa, said the party would select its governorship candidate from any part or zone of the state, stressing that the candidate’s quality and his or her capacity to effect the desired change is what matters to the party, and not his or her place or zone of origin.

There have been agitations for and claims by sections of the state to produce the next governor in 2023.

While the Ukwa La Ngwa Block, comprising nine of the state’s 17 local councils recently announced that it would present candidates for governorship poll in 2023, against the rotation order that implied that Abia North Senatorial zone would start another round of rotation in 2023, Abia State Founding Fathers (AFA), after a meeting recently, announced that it was the turn of Arochukwu, Ohafia and Isiukwuato Divisions in Abia North that ought to produce the next governor come 2023.
