The announcement by Rochas Okorocha heralded a standing ovation and tumultuous applause for both Annie Okwonkwo and Chris Ngige as Ngige left his seat to embrace Okwonkwo.
To further demonstrate that he is in support of the candidacy of Chris Ngige as they, Senator Okonkwo personally presented Chris Ngige as his preferred candidate to the Chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande.
Both Ngige and Okwokwo had earlier declared their intention to run for the governorship seat of Anambra. Since the intention of the duo was made public, it has been one form of political fight or the other.
