Abia PDP Celebrates Returnees From APC, APGA



The chairman of the Abia State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Johnson Onuigbo, has assured returnees to the party of  full integration and assured that they  would  never be  treated  as if  they  had ever  left the  party.

Further assuring them of their “rights and privileges” as foundation members he  acknowledged that their   absence from  the  party  during  the  2015 election made the  victory  of  the  PDP very difficult as  they  were   key  factors  in Abia  politics.
Onuigbo who gave the assurance at a meeting organised by the State Working Committee (SWC) of the party to specially welcome them back to PDP after their sojourn  in other political parties during the build up to the 2015 polls added that he was    optimistic  that  their  return would  bring  more sweeping  victory  for  the   party  in the  next elections.

The returnees, had defected mainly to the All Progressive Congress APC and All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) included  former chieftain of APGA and one-time member of the House of Representatives, Chief Damian Ozurumba, former Commissioner for Works, Chief Enyinnaya Ubani, and former Commissioner for Finance, Chief Emma Ibegbulam, as well as former council chairmen cut  across the 17 local government  areas of  the  state

He said that the SWC  was using  the  special meeting  with  the  12 prominent politicians and  foundation  members of  the   party in the state  to  celebrate  their  return  and  to  reassure  them of  their  importance  to  the  party.
