Ganduje stated this when Anambra APC stakeholders paid him a courtesy visit at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja.
He said there was a need for the region to speak for the negotiations for the political leadership of this country.
Ganduje stated: “I will like to let you know that Mr President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has approved our blueprint for political liberation of the South-east to the APC.
“He has approved the political emancipation; he has approved the political de-marginalisation of the South-east. Be with one voice because if you speak with one voice, your voice will be bigger, wider…for the negotiation for the political leadership of this country.
“There is no unity and you need unity in diversity. We need you to be united and deliberately, the party in Anambra State needs a change, revolution of the South-East.”
On his part, the State Chairman, Hon Basil Ejidike, said the party at the state level was poised to go into the 2025 governorship election in the state and be ready to deploy all democratic arsenal to win the election.
He said the party appreciates the importance of Anambra State as a socio-political and economic melting pot of the southeast and therefore cannot afford to gamble with the coming opportunity to take over the government house in Awka.
Ejidike told the NWC that at one of the party’s periodic stakeholders meetings held on December 2, 2023, they received the Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District, Ifeanyi Ubah of the Youth Democratic Party (YPP), Sen Uche Ekwunife and Hon John Nwokeji.
He added that they have also set up a Strategic Membership Drive Committee with the intent of reaching out to people with the wherewithal as well as harnessing the grassroots in order to improve the fortunes of the party.
