Confusion In Enugu As A Huge Number Of PDP Members Defect To APC

As the 2019 elections draw closer, a massive wave of defection has hit the PDP in Enugu state. many of the members of the party have defected to the rival party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to Daily Post most of the defectors are political heavyweights like: The former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, former governor of old Anambra state, Chief Jim Nwobodo, former Speaker, Enugu state House of Assemby, Hon. Eugene Odo, and a host of others.

This recent defection, has led to uncertainty for the future of the PDP in the state. The state chairman of APC, Dr Ben Nwoye said the PDP was now dead and buried as a result of this defection.

The APC also declared that they had dismantled all the rigging machines of the PDP in Enugu, and that nothing would stop them from removing PDP from power from the party during the next election.

Dr Nwoye, who spoke to the press on Saturday, January 21 after the party’s stakeholders’ meeting with officials of its National committee on the ongoing members’ re-registration exercise, also explained that with the defection of influential politicians from the PDP to the APC in the three senatorial districts of Enugu, “it is now obvious and clear that it is all over for the PDP.”

Nwoye said: “It is now obvious and clear that nothing will stop the APC from taking over Enugu from the PDP in 2019.”

Nwoye also made it clear that all the notable politicians and grassroot mobilizers that made PDP strong in the state, such as Senator Jim Nwobodo, and ex-Senate President, Ken Nnamani, from Enugu East district had all left the party for APC.

“Same has happened in Enugu-West and North senatorial zones, where the likes of veteran politician, Gbazuagu Nweke Gbazuagu, fondly called (GNG), immediate past Speaker of Enugu state House of Assembly, Eugene Odoh, former member, federal House of Representatives, Uchenna Ekwe, wife of ex- governor and former National chairman of the PDP, Mrs Dorothy Nwodo, amongst others have pitched tent with the ruling APC,” he added.

It was also disclosed that Chief Ken Nnamani, the erstwhile senate president, would be officially registered into the party on Sunday, January 22, at his Amechi political ward in Enugu south council area of the state.

Meanwhile, the media director of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Adeyanju Deji, has presented alleged facts to dismiss claims by the presidency that the US does not invite heads of state or presidents to the inauguration of their presidents.
