“The South East before now was not measuring in APC. But we have worked out strategies and modalities on how to improve relationship between the people of South East and APC government.

“That was top on the agenda and the need for President to come to South East as quickly as possible, to begin to show his presence.

“Luckily, the President will be coming to Ebonyi state very soon and he will pass through Imo state to Anambra state. So, covering three states within this short time will be right step in the right direction.

“We have come to realise in the South East that we are better off in APC than any other party in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
