Anambra governorship aspirant, Osita Chidoka has joined the long train of defectors.

But he is not going to the All People’s Congress (APC) like most of his former party members at the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Chidoka, a former Minister of Aviation, said in Abuja on Monday that he is leaving PDP for the United Progressive Party (UPP).

The statement by the Director-General of his campaign organization, Bright Nebedum, said Chidoka would declare for the UPP in his hometown of Obosi.

He explained that Chidoka’s decision to move to another political party is in furtherance of his political aspiration.

Before becoming minister in 2014, he was the Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC).

The governorship election in Anambra has been fixed for November 18 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
