Umeh, APGA National Chairman Dumps Party, Joins Peter Obi In Labour Party 

Following the failure of Senator Victor Umeh, the National Chairman of the All-Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) to secure the Anambra Central Senatorial District ticket for the 2023 Senatorial Election, he has decamped to Labour Party (LP) to actualize his ambition.
 
Umeh lost the party’s senatorial ticket to Hon. Dozie Nwankwo, the incumbent Member of the House of Representatives representing Anaocha/ Dunukofia/Njikoka Federal Constituency after scoring 151 votes against Nwankwo who polled 162 votes.
 
Consequently, Umeh on Thursday joined the Labour Party (LP), in Awka, the Anambra State capital where he picked the Expression of Interest and Nomination Form for the Anambra Central Senatorial District as primaries of the party were still going on.
 
Senator Umeh is the second top politician in Anambra State, particularly from Anaocha Local Government Area of the state, to join LP after the former governor of the State, Peter Obi, joined the party last week.
 
Obi resigned his membership from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on May 24.
 
Obi, who was the 2019 running mate to former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, on Monday secured the party’s presidential ticket after Prof. Pat Utomi stepped down for him.
 
The former APGA boss, if nominated by the party, would be contesting against Senator Uche Ekwunife of the main opposition PDP, Dozie Nwankwo of his former party, APGA and Chief Kodilichukwu Okelekwe of the All-Progressives Congress (APC) in the race to secure the Senatorial seat in 2023
