Former Anambra Governor Peter Obi defects from APGA to PDP

Former Governor of Anambra state and chieftain of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) this evening defected to the ruling People's Democratic Party, PDP. He made his decision known after a meeting with members of the South East zone of the PDP at his residence in Onitsha, Anambra state.

Speaking through his media aide this evening, Mr Obi who said his defection was to enable him become a competitor and not a spectator in national affairs. The former governor had maintained for a while now that he will not seek any further elective position.

He's pictured above with Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekwerumadu, Deputy Speaker,  Emeka Ihedioha, Secretary to Federal Government, Sen. Pius Anyim Pius, Governor of Akwa-Ibom State, Dr. Godswill Akpabio, former Governor, Okwesilieze Nwodo,former Senate President, Adolphus Wabara,  Sen. Uche  Chukwumerije, Sen. Hope Uzodinma, Sen. Ben Obi, Sen. Igwe Paulinus and Former Aviation Minister,  Kema Chikwe, at his private residence this evening...

To me APGA and PDP are both same.
He's paving way for his ministerial appointment or his being made the SGF.

What a betrayal! Someone touted as the poster child/boy of the APGA party by the late Ojukwu now turns around and joins an opposition party; in fact the main opposition party! Too bad, we need a tinge of loyalty in our political parties.

#2015 election drama

Unknown said...

I just discussed this issue not long ago with my political friend.....if Obi wont come out for Senate 2015....he will be appointed as a minister or Secretary to the FG wen uncle GEJ wins 2015.
They r soo close....i think GEJ convinced him....his political future is bright under GEJ watch.
As for Obiano, Apga and Anambra....i wont b surprised if they fall to pdp....
But for apga to last....obi shud make it clear that his defection is personal...and he shud try to support anambra apga....if not.....mtcheeeeewm...i dont see obiano to strongly control/support apga as obi did....
Its an interesting developing story though

IKEBABA said...

Congrats to him...PDP is the bane of Nigeria's Democracy*but at the same time he has betrayed ndi Igbo as the henchman of APGA i guess sooner or later APGA will merge with PDP...once again congrats to our great party PDP...Victory is ours

Unknown said...

I love politics, especially in nigeria. Anything can happen at anything ,

Unknown said...

Am beginning to see the signs of a two party system and I think that's what Nigeria needs. Mimmiko to PDP signaling the collapse of labour party.

Pee said...

Wonderful!!! Peter Obi has finally left APGA for PDP..am not surprised tho. he's always wanted to make dat move, tho I dunno Who Is Fooling Who"
