3,500 PDP Members Defect To APGA In Abia
The defections are not over yet.
With the recent defection of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)Lagos state chairman to the ruling All progressives Congress(APC), anything and everything is possible.
Over 3,500 members of the PDP have moved again, but this time around it is not to the ruling party and it is not in Lagos state.
This mass movement occurred at the Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia State, where over 3000 people dumped the party for the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).
Leader of the former PDP members, Maduka Akpulonu, who accused his former party of making efforts to stop them from defecting to APGA, said they decided to leave PDP because the party had failed to provide purposeful governance to the people of the state.
He welcomed the governorship aspirant of the party, Dr. Alex Otti and other leaders of the party to the area and urged him to extend his campaign tour to all the 11 wards of the council.
“We apologize for the botched rally last week. Our defection has shaken PDP to its foundation in Obingwa. They frustrated our efforts to dump PDP.
''The party won’t do anything for the people and won’t allow them to leave for a better one. APGA will win majority wards in Obingwa in 2019. There is no going back. We will take APGA and Dr. Alex Otti to other areas of Obingwa,” Akpulonu explained.
