Soludo welcomes 1,300 defecting PDP faithful to APGA


No fewer than 1,300 Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, supporters in Anambra State have officially switched allegiance to the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA.


The defectors, hailing from various parts of the state, were warmly welcomed by Governor Chukwuma Soludo during a reception held in Awka.


Governor Soludo encouraged the new members to utilize the ongoing APGA electronic re-registration process to finalize their membership transition.


He said, “I am happy that the PDP in Anambra has woken up and discovered that joining the APGA movement is the only way to the promised land.


“I appeal to everyone to join hands with my administration to build the party and make it a vehicle for transformation, and I’m also committed to using the vehicle to enhance development in the state.


“APGA, as a party, is deliberate about building human capital in a sustainable way. As you can see in some of our policies, free education, free antenatal care and delivery services for women, and the distribution of palm and coconut seedlings, among others.


“I promise to do more because APGA is the only platform through which real development will be taken to the people, especially the poor and downtrodden.”


Earlier, the state chairman of APGA, Ifeatu Obi-Okoye, appreciated the governor for leading the initiative and creating an enviable atmosphere within the party.

Speaking on behalf of the former PDP faithful, Emeka Anyaenetu said that Mr Soludo’s people-oriented policies informed their decision to join the APGA movement.

“We want to help the governor continue and complete his agenda for the development of Anambra state,” he said.
