A former national secretary of Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) and indigence of Enugu State; Chief Rex Onyeabor , has defected to the All Progressive Congress(APC) It could be recalled that notable members of the party in the state, including former Senate President, Ken Nnamani; former Governor of old Anambra State, Senator Jim Nwobodo, ,had earlier defected to the APC.
Chief Onyeabor, who was also the former coordinator of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign organization in Enugu state during the 2015 general elections, announced his defection at Ugboka, in Nkanu East LGA of Enugu state.
He said one of the reasons for his defection was the fact that PDP was not likely to survive her current protracted crisis.
“Apart from being former national secretary, I was BOT (Board of Trustee) member which is the highest advisory body in PDP and I attended a lot of meetings, virtually every meeting, reconciliation meeting.
“There are some people who are still there attending meeting to reconcile; you see what they are doing now, Modu Sheriff and Makarfi (Muhammed), and recently Jonathan and Seriake (Dickson); it is not likely that an agreement will be reached very soon.
