The chairman of the Ebeano group, Chief Emmanuel Okwor, announced the decision of the group to join the APC on Tuesday.
Okwor, in a statement, said the alliance with the APC “is to consolidate the partnership with President-elect, Bola Tinubu, to achieve good governance in the country.”
According to him, members of the Ebeano political family across the country have been consulted and in agreement with the alliance in the interest of the people.
The Ebeano chieftain stated that the interest and welfare of the group will be better served under the APC structure in the country.
The Ebeano political family established since 1999 has remained the dominant political force in Enugu State, until recently when Peter Obi’s political hurricane stopped greater number of their members from political hold of Enugu State.
The group had consistently produced state governors, senators, members of House of Representatives, House of Assembly members, Ministers as well as local government council officials in the state since its inception.
The group is led by Governor Ugwuanyi according to its tradition that the highest political office holder in the state is always the leader of the group.
