Speaking further, Uzodinma told Ebere:
“I will give you all the support you will require. APC is a national party. APC is a party to beat in Nigeria. APC is the party that produced me to be the governor of Imo state.

Why APC will win Anambra governorship election, Hope Uzodinma
Uzodinma on Tuesday, August 17, that the party was a competent brand for the poll.
He stated that the Anambra people would buy into the manifesto of the party, thereby leading to a win at the polls. The governor said:
“We are going there with a brand, an enviable brand that will be easy to sell, and by the grace of God, I think APC will win Anambra gubernatorial election come November 2021.''
He noted that though the south-eastern state is currently being ruled by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), the APC had a better name and is more functional and mobile than any other party in the country.
