A People’s Democratic Party, PDP, stalwart in Anambra State, Kodilichukwu Okelekwe has joined the leagues of defectors in the field of Nigerian politics.
Recently, the former PDP governorship candidate in Anambra state dumped his the opposition party to the ruling party, All Progressives Congress, APC.
He claimed during a press conference that the interests of Igbo would be better served in APC than PDP, thus his need to join.
He said that despite the huge support Igbos gave to PDP, no meaningful project was done in the the South East.
“The party promised to build 2nd Niger Bridge under Public-Private Partnership, PPP, but under APC, the project is being funded 100 percent by the government.
“Similarly, the Zik Mausoleum in Onitsha was abandoned for years, and it’s the APC government that completed it and made it a tourist attraction.
“The fact that the PDP is in disarray has paved the way for the APC to take over as it’s obvious that the party will disintegrate after its primaries because nobody there wants to serve under anybody.
“As for APGA, that one is a living dead and will soon go into oblivion.
“Only APC is maintaining the momentum, with many prominent people in the state joining the party.
“I, therefore, have no iota of doubt in my mind that the 2021 Anambra governorship election will be a walkover for APC
