Just five days to the general elections, members of the All Progressives Congress in Enugu West Senatorial Zone have defected to the Peoples Democratic Party in support of its gubernatorial candidate, Barr. Peter Mbah.
The APC members set their brooms ablaze while embracing the PDP at the endorsement rally organised at the zone on Sunday, according to Daily Post.
They described PDP as Enugu’s only hope for good governance.
The defectors, led by a former acting Chairman of the APC in the state, Gilbert Chikwado-Chukwu, declared their rejection of the APC, calling their action historic and the triumph of light and hope.
Chikwado-Chukwu, who spoke on behalf of others, said they decided to join the PDP because of the “good governance and massive infrastructure” the state was enjoying under the party.
Receiving the former APC members to the PDP, the chairman of the party in the state, Augustine Nnamani, lauded them for taking the “right step” and assured that the “PDP would give them all the privileges being enjoyed by members.”
