•Anambra State Deputy Governor, Dr Nkem Okeke


Except in the event of a last-minute change of mind, Dr Nkem Okeke, the Deputy Governor of Anambra State, will soon dump the ruling party in the state, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), for the federal-ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Sources close to Dr Okeke disclosed that he decided to dump APGA as he can no longer bear the way he is being treated by his boss, Governor Willie Obiano, and his wife, Chief (Mrs) Ebelechukwu Obiano.

According to one source, “No deputy governor has been treated like Dr Nkem Okeke in the history of this country. Gov Obiano sidelined his loyal deputy and decided to run the administration with his wife. Despite being a hardworking loyal deputy, the Governor left him abandoned.

“Even as APGA is facing election in the next one month, the deputy governor has no role to play. He is not a member of the campaign council and was not being invited to attend party campaigns. The deputy governor was not informed of the APGA campaign flag-off.

“His office has suffered so much negligence. All his entitlements have been seized. He is only living on his salary while the members of the cabal are buying up houses in Awka, Abuja, UK, Dubai and US. But the deputy governor is so broke that he can't change his official car.

“In most cases, his official car which he has been using in the last 5 years will break down on the road and he has to wait on the sun until it is fixed. Obiano refused to pay his travel allowance, wardrobe allowance and other entitlements. The young man has been suffering and smiling.”

Dr Okeke, according to the source, “has had it enough and on his way to APC. He is expected to head a section of APC campaign council where he can help in telling Ndi Anambra the level of atrocities committed by the Obiano administration in the last seven years.”

However, contacted for comments, the State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, C Don Adinuba, dismissed the report, simply saying: “Lower than fake news.”
