Abia APC deputy governorship candidate defects to PDP

The Deputy Governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress in Abia state, Fred Eke Idika, has defected to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party.

Mr. Idika announced his defection at the ongoing PDP Women Presidential Rally in Umuahia, the Abia State capital.

He said he was abandoning the APC ticket and crossing to the PDP with over 20,000 of his loyal supporters within and outside Abia.

Mr. Idika said the PDP governments in Nigeria had performed well and that the transformation agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan deserves continuity.

He thereafter pledged his support for the PDP governorship flag-bearer, Okezie Victor Ikpeazu and other PDP candidates in Abia.

He said Mr. Ikpeazu remained the right man to drive the vehicle of development of the state after May 29, when the tenure of incumbent Governor Theodore Orji expires.

    APC is drowning already, opposition not built on a solid and genuine foundation

  • Awarawa

    Tinubu and his gangs of children of anger would be taught a bitter political lesson. He would lose his pursuit of federal purse because of insatiable greed and his devilish stronghold on Lagos treasury.

  • Omo Olugbon

    Yeye dey smell…d smart Alec quickly bolt away with dollars in pocket and with no prospect of been elected in d first place. Everyone knows dat SE is more interested in Jonathan than even d SS where he come from. SE ppl will rather sink or swim with Jonathan…their leaders are enjoying on their behalf in GEJ government.

  • hummm

    So let me get this picture, if election were held 6weeks ago he would have been in APC that is predicted to win the election then and now. But, he has now left the winning team for the loosing team. This guy should get the award for the BIGGEST LOSER.

    • adeade

      Predicted to win by who? How can APC win in Abia? The guy is smart oooo,, may be he has been promised Commissionership in PDP. Is it not the APC in Abia where their youths are saying the governorship candidate is even planted as a mole by PDP.

  • Jay

    Ok he was planted and maybe he wasn’t getting enough information to give to the PDP and decided to go to his natural abode. No other tenable explanation.

  • Yusuf

    you will bite your finger

  • dd

    This is the type of thing a flag bearer would see in dream and staff fasting. I pity the APC flag bearer.

  • dd

    Rumour is kicking in the Osinbanjo want to leave politics but Tinibu is begging him to wait till after the election. What if Osinbanjo decide to leave the islamic party and stick to God’s calling upon his life?
