Home Politics Ex-NIMASA DG joins APC



A former Director-General of the Nigeria Maritime Authority (NIMASA), Dr. George Eneh, has joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu State.

He was received by the Chairman, Ugochukwu Agballah, and other leaders of the party.

Eneh said having served out his time at NIMASA, which was apolitical; he decided to join politics through the party because of the need to break the ongoing political monopoly in the state.

He said it was time for the APC to take over the reins of power in Enugu State, to deliver true democracy dividends to the people.

Eneh said: “I believe in the leadership ability of the Chairman, Chief Agballah, to turn things around for the APC in Enugu. He is a man with track record. This is why I have come to join the party. Together, it is hoped that we will turn things around for the party.

“I encourage other top ranking professionals to come forward. Developing Nigeria cannot be left for President Muhammadu Buhari alone. We are gathered to work for APC and Nigeria. Therefore, I formally declare for APC.”

Agballah said that the coming of Eneh would increase the fortunes of the party in the state and the Southeast.

“This is a great moment for the party, as Dr. Eneh and other sons and daughters of the state are coming into the party to deliver Enugu and bring the Southeast closer to the centre,” he said.

Agballah added that with the likes of Eneh in the party, APC was prepared to take over power in the 2023 general election and subsequent elections in the state.

“We want to end the culture of political monopoly in Enugu State. This is why we have kept open our doors to receive statesmen, who will draw their followers into our party,” he said.

Earlier at the state secretariat of the APC, Agballah welcomed members, who rejoined the party after aligning with the faction of the party led by its former caretaker chairman, Ben Nwoye, during the state congress.
