Njikoka II: Hon Ikechukwu Okakpu emerges consensus candidate for Abagana.

The frontline aspirant seeking to represent the people of Njikoka ii (Umuowelle) in the State House of Assembly, Hon Ikechukwu Okakpu, on the platform of APGA, has emerged the consensus candidate of his community, Abagana. Hon. Okakpu was elected the consensus candidate in a mock election held by the Abagana Welfare Union and Stakeholders on Wednesday August 22nd, 2018.
The election which was held between Hon Ikechukwu Okakpu and Engr. Uche Onuorah both of Abagana and APGA extraction saw Hon Okakpu pulled a total of 16 votes to defeat Uche Onuorah who pulled 7. Okakpu having emerged the choice of Ndi Abagana for APGA political party, is now the sole candidate as favoured by zoning for the upcoming 2019 general elections. It is expected that same will be applicable to other political parties to elect who will fly their flags at the forthcoming party primaries from Abagana extraction and the subsequent elections.

You may recall that the leadership of Umuowelle Clan (Nimo, Abagana and Abba), the Traditional Rulers /Heads had met on 17th June, 2018 at the palace of Igwe Abba, HRH, Igwe L.N. Eze where the meeting rose with the resolution exclusively obtained by which read in part “that we reaffirm our total support to the already existing zoning formula of one term of four (4) years for each town of Umuowelle clan (Njikoka 2 Constituency) and it is now the turn of Abagana Community to produce the next member of the state House of Assembly for Njikoka II constituency” and were signed by all the Igwes/Head of the three communities.


The meeting further mandated ndi Abagana to produce credible individuals across political parties that will contest the general election. Also attached is the letter of the Abagana Welfare Union to the Executive Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano and copied the APGA leadership and other stakeholders informing the governor of the four years single term zoning agreement that is being practice within the constituency for many political years now.
