Hon Anyawu was the immediate-past national ex-officio (southeast) of the APC. He has also served in many political capacities and has held offices at the national level of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party.
He has a degree in public administration from Ambrose Alli University Ekpoma and an MSc in international affairs and diplomacy from the Amadu Bello University Zaria.
Political watchers say Anyanwu has been an advocate of good governance, and overtime contributed to the socio-political development of his home state, Abia.
APC convention: Abia stakeholders demand disqualification of Emenike’s faction
Legit.ng had earlier reported that critical stakeholders of the party in Abia state have approached an Abuja High Court, calling for the disqualification of the Chief Ikechi Emenike-led faction from the exercise.
The stakeholders led by Mr. Ibe Ogwuma in suit no: FCT /HC/CV/1012/2022 demanded an order dissolving the purported congresses conducted by Emenike and his associates.
Also joined in the originating summons as respondents were Chief Friday Nwosu and Ikenna Anyalewachi.
The stakeholders also prayed for an order restraining Chief Kingsley Ononugbu from parading himself as the state chairman of APC in Abia state, stressing that he is a product of the aforementioned "kankaroo" congress.
