Anambra 2021: Another Lawmaker Dumps APGA

Ahead of the Anambra gubernatorial election, another lawmaker has dumped APGA.

Gatekeepers News reports that the member representing Idemili South State Constituency in Anambra State House of Assembly, South East Nigeria, Chukwuka Ezenwune has defected from the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Ezenwune announced his defection at the plenary on Tuesday.

He noted that his defection from APGA was due to the “lack of internal democracy and hijack of the party by few individuals”.

Ezenwune added that he joined APGA in 2012 with the hope it would grow and become a national party with more governorship seats other than Anambra, but that so far it has been a case of “one step forward, 10 steps backward”.

Ezenwune said, “I am happy to join the PDP which is well-organised and built beyond strong individuals.

“I cannot point to the project in my local government area apart from the one I built as a constituency project and the Community Chose Your Project of the state government.

“During the last Congress, I and my supporters were viciously sidelined, so I realised I have no future in APGA and I consulted with my people.

“I have helped to build the party since I joined but I have to go because it is not the Igbo party like they are making people to believe.”

Ezenwune’s defection has bring the total number of APGA state lawmakers in Anambra to have defected to the other party to be seven

Six state’s lawmakers have joined the All Progressives Congress, including the Deputy Governor of the state, Nkem Okeke.
