Nnewi South PDP Members Defect to Labour Party
By Rebecca Ejifoma
Some members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State, Tuesday, decamped to the Labour Party.
The former PDP members were received at Ezinifite, Nnewi by the Labour Party’s governorship candidate, Mr. Obiora Agbasimalo, ahead of this year’s election on November 6.
The Chairman of the decampees from the LGAs and wards, Chief Alphonsus Ofoke, said their decision to identify with Labour Party was as a result of the outstanding attributes of the governorship candidate.
According to Ofoke, Agbasimalo is a man who has exhibited a great sense of humility and a clear vision of how to move the state forward.
In his reaction, Agbasimalo congratulated them for such bold steps while assuring them that the party is home to all.
He said: “There is no discrimination in the party. We will all work together to win the state for Labour Party and properly position the state as the best to live and do business in Nigeria.”
