The reception was led by Chief Emeka Nwosu, the Labour Party chairman in Ogbaru local government, alongside Hon. Afam Ogene, representing Ogbaru federal constituency in the House of Representatives, LP governorship aspirant Valentine Ozigbo, and other LP stalwarts.

Former APGA aspirant for Ogbaru 1 constituency, Hon. Ndubuisi Igwilo, expressed the group’s dissatisfaction with Governor Soludo’s tenure, alleging a failure to fulfill campaign promises and citing perceived shortcomings in governance. Igwilo highlighted Soludo’s unmet pledge to conduct local government elections and criticized the perceived insignificance of infrastructure projects undertaken.

“I led the decampees into the LP because the LP is the party for the people,” Igwilo stated, emphasizing support for Peter Obi and the LP’s vision for the state. He praised the LP’s track record and expressed optimism about the party’s potential to lead Anambra in 2025.

Hon. Afam Ogene echoed sentiments of disappointment with Soludo’s administration, emphasizing the need for effective governance beyond infrastructure development. He welcomed the new members, underscoring the LP’s inclusive ethos and vision for the state.

In response, LP governorship aspirant Valentine Ozigbo commended the decampees for their decision, reaffirming his determination to challenge Soludo in the upcoming election. Ozigbo criticized Soludo’s performance and called for a change of leadership in 2025, urging Anambra residents to support the Labour Party’s bid for governance.

The event concluded with the leader of the decampees donating 200 bags of rice to LP party members, reinforcing their commitment to the party’s cause.
