Soludo receives 1,300 PDP defectors into APGA

No fewer than 1,300 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members in Anambra have formally defected to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

The defectors, who came from across the state, were received by Governor Chukwuma Soludo at a welcome ceremony in Awka.

Soludo urged the new party members to take advantage of the on-going APGA electronic re-registration to complete their membership.

He said: “I am happy that PDP in Anambra has woken up and discovered that joining APGA movement is the only way to the Promised Land.

“I appeal to everyone to join hands with my administration to build the party and make it a vehicle for transformation; and I’m also committed to using the vehicle to enhance development in the state.

“APGA as a party is deliberate about building human capital in a sustainable way. As you can see in some of our policies – free education, free antenatal care and delivery services for women, distribution of palm and coconut seedlings, among others.

“I promise to do more because APGA is the only platform through which real development will be taken to the people, especially the poor and downtrodden.”

Earlier, the State Chairman of APGA, Mr Ifeatu Obi-Okoye appreciated the governor for leading the initiative and creating the enviable atmosphere within the party.

Speaking on behalf of the former PDP faithful, Mr Emeka Anyaenetu, said that Gov. Soludo’s people-oriented policies informed their decision to join the APGA movement.

“We want to help the governor continue and complete his agenda for the development of Anambra state,” he said. (NAN)
