The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu State at the weekend suffered another setback in Enugu State with the defection of 3000 of its members in Aku town, Igbo-etiti LGA to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This mass defection came on the heels of the recent declaration of former Governor Sullivan Chime for the APC, after quitting PDP, the platform he used to rule Enugu State for eight years.
Chime said he would have apologised to PDP but there was nobody to apologise to as his former party was dead and buried.
On their own part, the latest PDP defectors, who moved en mass to APC under the aegis of Aku Youth Movement (AYM), said the interest of their community under the present administration of PDP in the state had been subverted.
The AYM members, drawn from the six political wards in the community, staged a road show around the community and the council headquarters on Saturday, to herald their entrance into APC.
Addressing the rally, Chineme Agu, one of the new entrants to APC said before December anybody remaining in PDP in Aku would be seen as an pariah, as APC has come to restore the dignity of Aku people.
Dr. Uche Olenyi, the leader of AYM however implored members of APC in Aku to desist from abusing the State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi or political appointees from the area but to propagate APC ideology to the people.
Olenyi said ideology drives democracy and not the political bickering and antagonism we practice in Nigeria.
Receiving the defectors, Best Aroh, the Chairman of APC in Igbo-etiti told the new members that APC is not a party that shares money, but a party that wants to save the poor masses.
Making remarks, Rt. Hon. Eugene Odo, a chieftain of APC and former Speaker of Enugu State House of Assembly, charged the new member to go for more members.
Odo said the era of political hooliganism has given way to knowledge driven politics.
Blaming the problem in his former political party, PDP, to impunity and leadership crisis, Odo urged the youth of Aku to take advantage of their population and intellectual capacity as the only town in the state that parades over 40 academic professors in various fields of life, to get what they want under APC.
“Nigerians are suffering today because the intellectuals left politics for uneducated to decide the future for all of us” Odo said.
The former speaker advised members of the party who do not have permanent voters card to seize the opportunity provided by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, now to register and get their voters cards, which is their bargaining power.
