A former member of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Christopher Atule Okoche, who represented Ibaji Constituency on the platform of the People Democratic Party has defected to the All Progressives Congress.
Okoche was also a former Caretaker Chairman of Ibaji Local Government Area of Kogi State.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that he made this known at the APC stakeholders’ meeting held on Sunday in Ibaji Local Government.
He said his decision to join the APC was based on the giant strides recorded by the government of APC at the federal level and in Kogi State.
He said he had made consultations with his immediate constituents and would come at a given date with all his supporters into the APC.
Okoche said there was no guarantee of victory for the PDP or any other party in Kogi apart from the APC in the November 11 governorship polls.
