Abuja - Former Senator representing Anambra Central, Uche Ekwunife is lobbying the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the party’s ticket in the rerun ordered by the Court of Appeal, reports Thisday.
Ekwunife, who was elected into the Senate under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) defected to the APC after her election was nullified by the court.
Ekwunife on Tuesday made a surprise appearance at the national secretariat of the APC in what looked like a familiarisation to secure the support of key party leaders for her political aspiration.

Her meeting with Oyegun was short as he was not expecting her.
She also met with other members of the National Working Committee (NWC) to seek their understanding and support.
Ekwunife declined to speak with journalists on her defection and visit to the party’s secretariat.
