National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party -PDP, Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu says no fewer than thirty thousand members of the ruling All Progressives Congress are ready to defect to the PDP.
A statement issued by the Special Adviser on Media to Senator Anyanwu, Ikenna Onuoha and made available to Atlantic Reporters, Friday evening said the defectors “are made up of elected and appointed political office holders in the state and beyond with their supporters.”
According to him, “the ceremony when concluded will mark the end to the selective governance of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state and South East geopolitical zone.”
“Prior to my endorsement as consensus candidate and subsequent emergence as National Secretary of PDP, most power brokers in the state, South East and Nigeria at large had assured me of their willingness to rejoin our party with their numerous supporters if I became the Chief Scribe of PDP.”
“Today, they have met all necessary conditions for their decamping. I want to reliably tell you that Imo state, South East and Nigeria in general will be witnessing another political tsunami that will mark the end of APC reign.”
Anyanwu appealed to those aggrieved with the APC administration to use the opportunity to join the PDP, adding that “such unity will rescue the society from the orchestrated pains, anguish and starvations.”
