Awka - Senator Uche Ekwunife, the erstwhile senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, announced on Friday that she had defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

 Ekwunife, who was inaugurated as senator in June, 2015, had her election nullified by Appeal Court in Enugu on December 6, 2015, on grounds of irregularities.

The court ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a fresh election in the zone within 90 days.
