Anxiety as Enugu PDP Heavyweights Defect en Mass to APC

PDP bigwigs in Enugu state are defecting in droves to the APC, Daily Post says.

The defectors include 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.

The wave of defection has thrown serious uncertainty over the future of the PDP in Enugu state, as the state's governorship election draws nearer.

Reacting to the development, Enugu APC Chairman, Dr. Ben Nwoye said the PDP is now dead and buried.

“It is now obvious and clear that nothing will stop the APC from taking over Enugu from the PDP in 2019”, he boasted.

According to him, all the notable politicians and grassroot mobilizers that made PDP strong in Enugu like 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.
