The ruling All Progressive Congress APC says the former Chief of Army Staff Lt.Gen. Oyeabo Azubike Ihejirika (rtd) is now one of its members.
Mamman Mohammed, the director of Press and Media to governor Mai Buni of Yobe state, the chairman of the ruling party’s caretaker committee, announced this in a statement on Friday.
Mr Mohammed said the former army chief was presented to his principal in Abuja by governor Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa state, who is the party’s head of Strategy and Contact committee.
“This is a great moment for the party as Gen. Ihejirika and other sons and daughters of the region are coming into the party to deliver the region and bring the South-east closer to the center,” the APC chairman said.
“We look forward to more of APC presence in the South-east,” the Yobe helmsman added.
