Drama as Ebonyi APP Chairman, APC Publicity Scribe dump parties

* APP's Elekwachi to join PDP

From SAMSON AKPU, Abakaliki

Chairman of Action Peoples Party (APP) in Ebonyi State, Engr. Chinedum Elekwachi, and the State Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Nwoba Chika Nwoba, have resigned their respective positions.

Umahi…set to join APC

Elekwachi who disclosed this today in Abakaliki, while briefing journalists, said he took the decision after consultations with his family, friends, associates and political mentors.

He also announced his decision to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“My decision to join PDP was borne out of the fact that the patry is unarguably the only political party that truly resonates with the masses, not only in Ebonyi but also across the country,” he said, adding: “The APC, which claims to be a ruling party in the country has failed Nigerians and has been rejected already. The recent #EndSARS protests across the country is a clear case of vote of no confidence on the party.”

According to him, “I am joining PDP to team up and work with the good people of Ebonyi State to retrieve the State from the hands of a very few mercantilist politicians who have personalized governance and impoverished the people of the state for years now.

Elekwachi said he had collapsed APP structure in Ebonyi into the PDP, adding that henceforth, the PDP and all the leaders of the party, would enjoy his 100 percent support and that of the entire former APP members in the State.

“I am moving to the PDP together with all the members of the State Working Committee (SWC) of APP, all Local Government and Ward executives and over 20,000 registered members of the party in the State,” he said.

Nwoba…I can’t work with Umahi in APC

On his part, the APC publicity Secretary, Nwoba in a statement he issued yesterday evening, thanked the party and its leaders for finding him worthy to be elected to the position in 2018, at the age of 27.

Nwoba, in a telephone interview with AbeyaNews, said part of the reasons for his resignation was that “I cannot work with Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi.”

Governor Umahi is widely reported to have perfected plans to join APC in the nearest future.
