Mrs Uwaoma Olewengwa, Ex-Abia Commissioner Joins APGA

The Abia State Commissioner for Industry Chief Mrs Uwaoma Olewengwa has resigned her membership of the State Executive Council and subsequently announced her defection from the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) to All Progressives Grand Alliance(APGA).Speaking to newsmen recently in Umuahia, Mrs Olewengwa stated that she resigned her appointment for personal reasons and decided to join APGA because of her desire to partner other progressives in changing the narrative of Abia.According to her,” I resigned from the cabinet on Sunday 18 December 2022 by a letter which I personally handed over to Governor Ikpeazu. My reasons for leaving PDP are private and personal but what is important now is that I have resigned from the cabinet and subsequently joined APGA because of my belief that working with the calibre of progressives within the party we can change the trajectory of the state”.Responding to a question, Mrs Olewengwa commended APGA for electing a renowned technocrat in the person of Prof Gregory Ibe as guber flag bearer, asserting that with his antecedents Abia will definitely experience massive development if he emerges victorious at the 2023 governorship election.Correspondents report that until her resignation from Abia State Executive Council recently, Mrs Olewengwa was Commissioner for Industry, Promotions and Development.
