(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP in Enugu state South- East Nigeria, has suffered another major set back as one of its chieftains and immediate past senator that represented Enugu North senatorial district, Chief Ayogu Eze, has dumped the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Senator Eze, a two-time member of the upper chamber of the National Assembly NASS, was the chairman senate committee on works until he ran for the governorship election under his former party PDP, in 2015, but lost to the incumbent governor, chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

His defection was confirmed to African Examine on Thursday in Enugu  by the state chairman of APC, Dr. Ben Nwoye, who salute the courage and bold step of the politician.

Our correspondent gathered that Senator Eze, had engaged in intensive consultation with political allies and  stakeholders in his Enugu North senatorial district and beyond before taking the decision.

He  has already  registered as a member of the ruling  APC in his political ward, in line with the party’s constitution.
