A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Enugu State, Barrister Amaechi Ozoemena and hundreds of his supporters decamped to the APC yesterday.
Barr. Ozoemena, an Abuja based lawyer, and a grassroots politician who understandably played a major role in the victory of the PDP in the 2015 general election in Igbo Etiti L.G.A of Enugu State defected to the APC at an elaborate ceremony at his hometown- Ukehe.
He and his followers were received by the State APC Chairman, Dr. Ben Nwoye who handed over the party’s flag to him.
Ozoemena told reporters that the decision to dump the APC was informed by the desire to contribute his quota in the new agenda of the ruling government which in his words would take Nigeria to the Promised Land.
According to him, the PDP as a political organisation has failed and lacks viable political future in Enugu State.
He added that the South East, and “Ndigbo need to bring their astuteness into the APC and ensure that their interest are promoted and protected.”
The State APC Chairman, Dr. Ben Nwoye described their decision to move to APC as the right step in the right direction.
