DEFECTION OF A FEW ABIA PDP MEMBERS TO THE APC

The attention of the Abia PDP has been drawn to the news of the defection of a very few members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Abia State to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

As a truly democratic party that believes in the principles of liberty, justice and equality, the Abia PDP welcomes such a development with an open mind and the understanding that the individuals who left are entitled to their freedom of association as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and other regional and international treaties that recognise the liberty of men to freely associate with whomever they wish.

The Abia PDP truly appreciates the exit of these men because after the 2023 general elections, the Abia PDP did a post-mortem on itself and came to the inevitable conclusion that the Party needs to reinvent itself for the future and that the only way for that to happen would be for the party to shed weight not by expelling some people but for those responsible for its brief downturn to exit by themselves. That is exactly what has happened and the Abia PDP truly appreciates their exit after they recognised that they were no longer useful to the Party in whatsoever form.

While we wish them well in their future endeavours, we also tell our members, numerous sympathisers and well wishers that the Abia PDP has received many applications from very highly placed and well meaning Abians who are desirous of joining the PDP, Africa’s largest democratic party. In due time, we would unveil and let Abians see the calibre of people who have joined the PDP from other major political parties.

What should be a source of concern to Abians is why these people are leaving the PDP and rather than join the ruling party in Abia which is the Labour Party, they are joining the APC which is the ruling party at the centre. That alone speaks much about the character of the people who defected from the PDP.

We call on all members of the Abia PDP and our numerous sympathisers and well wishers to remain steadfast, courageous, hopeful and believe in the ability of the present leadership of the Abia PDP to continue to maintain the great stability that our party has witnessed in the past 25 years.

PDP – Power to the People!

Signed

Hon. Abraham Amah

Abia PDP Vice Chairman/Acting State Publicity Secreatary.
