The Enugu State chapter of the People’s Democratic party, (PDP) is likely to suffer soon, another serious setback, as the former National Chairman of the party, Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo, and some of its chieftains in the area might have concluded plans to dump the party for the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
AFRICAN EXAMINER reliably gathered that apart from Nwodo, an ex- Governor of the State, and one time Senator who represented the State’s East senatorial district, Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani, of the Peoples For Democratic Change (PDC), as well as some former members of the national and state Assemblies from the area, are also making serious moves to embrace the Chief John Odigie-led ruling APC.
The latest PDP heavy weights cross- carpeting in the state, is coming less than a month one of its leaders, and erstwhile Governor of old Anambra State, Senator Jim Nwobodo and some Chieftains of the party dumped the umbrella platform for the APC.
It would be recalled that a former Nigeria’s Senate President, and ex- member of the PDP Board of Trustee (BOT), Chief Ken Nnamani, who equally hails from the state, had recently announced his retirement from partisan politics.
However, with the recent and imminent mass defection of its leaders and founding fathers to the ruling APC, only time will tell what future holds for the PDP in the coal city State of Enugu.
