How Abia State Governor's Habits Led To The Expulsion Of 2,000 Members From The APC To PDP

Powerful leaders in the country from major political parties continue to use the political game to rally supporters for their victory in the 2023 elections. Okezie Victor Ikpeazu has led to the expulsion of another 2,000 members from the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) to the ruling party in the Abia State People Democratic Party, PDP.

According to the report, the defectors who came from 14 constituencies in Ukwa West Local were led into the APC fold, by the State Deputy Chairman, Chief Ogunka John Adiele, alongside the APC legal Adviser, the LGA woman leader, the LGA youth leader, the Obuzor Ward Chairman of the APC among other decompose in a well-attended declaration ceremony held at Obehie, in Ukwa West LGA of the state, on Wednesday.

What prompted their defection into the PDP

According to one of the former APC members , Ikpeazu's attitude towards giving party members their rights and bringing development to the Abia people led to their entry into the PDP. Of course, this is one of the good qualities that made Ikpeazu the governor of Abia State, because if you recall, Ikpeazu had been governor since 2015, and then the people re-elected him a second time. However, if Governor Ikpeazu is not in a position to help the people, there is no reason for the people of Abia to trust him to run for a second term.

The main confirmation of my previous statement is that in 2017, it was Governor Ikpeazu who won the Best Governor award of the year, and that was because of the projects he undertook that benefited the people directly. A few of them include Back2Back, Abia State school feeding program, Abia State poultry cluster project, four new rice mills in Uzuakoli, large-scale mushroom production, SME development, e.t.c.

In terms of supporting the PDP, Ikpeazu is one of the governors the PDP is proud of in terms of supporting the party's policies. Even five months ago, the PDP sent a congratulatory message to Ikpeazu for his contribution to the party's development.
