Kenneth Okonkwo Criticizes APC’s Attempt to Manipulate Leadership in 10th National Assembly, Urges Opposition Unity

…By Dorcas Funmi for TDPel Media. Nigerian politician and Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okonkwo, has expressed his opinion on the leadership battle within the 10th National Assembly (NASS).


The NASS inauguration is scheduled to take place on June 13, 2023, at the National Assembly Complex in Abuja.

Okonkwo, in a tweet, accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of fueling unnecessary ethnic and religious divisions, emphasizing the need for unity among opposition parties.

APC’s Lack of Majority and NASS Leadership:

According to Okonkwo, the APC, despite being the ruling party, does not hold the majority of members in the House of Representatives.

He argues that this lack of majority should disqualify the APC from producing the leadership of the NASS.

Instead, he suggests that the opposition parties, when combined, have the majority members and should be responsible for selecting the NASS leadership.

Appeal for Opposition Unity:

Recognizing the numerical advantage of opposition parties, Okonkwo calls on them to unite and nominate a candidate capable of defeating the ruling party.


He believes that proper leadership and unity among the opposition parties would lead to a more representative and equitable distribution of power within the NASS.

APC’s Alleged Intentions and Opposition Responsibility:

Okonkwo accuses the APC of attempting to exacerbate ethnic and religious divisions in Nigeria through their lack of unity.

He argues that this approach is detrimental to the country’s progress and stability.

In response, he urges the opposition parties to act swiftly and sponsor their own candidates, emphasizing the importance of reflecting Nigeria’s diversity and ensuring fairness and justice in the allocation of all elective positions.


In order to preserve peace, progress, and stability in Nigeria, Kenneth Okonkwo calls for a clear understanding that the ruling APC does not hold the majority in the House of Representatives.

He encourages opposition parties to unite and select their own candidate for the NASS leadership, emphasizing the need to counteract the alleged ethnic and religious divisions perpetuated by the APC.

Okonkwo believes that through unity and inclusivity, Nigeria can overcome these challenges and move toward a more harmonious future.
