APC Members Burn Dozens Of Brooms, Displays 'APC RIP' Inscribed White Coffin, Joins PDP In Akwa-Ibom 7

Thousands of All Progressives Congress (APC) members dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Akwa Ibom State.

The APC members, led by the chapter and ward chairmen from all local government areas of Akwa Ibom State, gathered for a defection event at the Ibom Hall Ground, Uyo, the state capital, on Monday, December 10, 2018.

During the defection event, thousand of defected members sealed their defection to the PDP by waving their brooms, dropping them in pile and setting them on fire. The defectors also displayed a white coffin with ‘APC RIP’ inscribed on it.

State governor, Udom Emmanuel, was present at the event to receive the defectors who the chairman of the forum of APC Chapter Chairmen, Joseph Ama, said were the support base built up since 2008. Ama said they left the APC because of the party’s reign of impunity.

Udom described the defection as unprecedented and said the defectors’ convictions could not be bought over. He said:
