2. Popularity

The party chieftain maintained that APC is not popular in the southeast, adding that it is an uphill task to make people accept the party because it has a dark image.

According to him, APC had been difficult to sell since 2015 when the party started because people don’t believe in the political platform.

3. Agitations in southeast

Agitations by separatist groups, economic challenges, the allegation that Nnamdi Kanu is unlawfully being detained by APC.

APC's failure to win Anambra election

Speaking further, Nwoye stated that the factors mentioned above also contributed to the party's failure to win the Anambra governorship election.

He also added that the insincerity of APC's leadership in the zone led by Ken Nnamani, former Senate president, added to its predicament.

In a previous report by Legit.ng, David Umahi, the governor of Ebonyi state, dissociated himself from campaign posters with the inscription that he wants to run for president in the next general elections in 2023.

The posters have reportedly flooded various social media platforms and strategic locations across the country.

Reacting via a statement by his media aide, Francis Nwaze, Governor Umahi noted that the gesture may be in good faith, but he would only heed the call to run for president if he is divinely inspired.
