The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has welcomed back the lawmaker representing Ekwusigo Constituency in the Anambra House of Assembly, Onyebuchi Offor, just a few weeks after he defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Anambra Lawmaker, Onyebuchi Offor Returns To PDP 43 Days After Joining APC

Offor, the Minority Leader of the House, who had defected to the APC on October 6, 2021, announced his return to the PDP at plenary in Awka, on Thursday, November 18.

Speaking on why he dumped the APC, the Lawmaker said his decision to return to the PDP followed wide consultation with constituents and stakeholders from his area.

He said, “It is time I join the party at the centre so that my constituents can feel and experience the presence of the ruling party.

“Two months ago, I announced my defection from PDP to APC on the floor of this House. I have tested the waters and realised that my former party PDP is better. So, I want to humbly inform this House that I’m going back to my party, the PDP.”

Mr Chuka Ezewunne, member representing Idemili-South constituency, welcomed Offor back to the PDP and urged other lawmakers to come back to the party.

He said, “As a founding member of PDP, I know Offor well and he is a good friend too, though temptation drew him to APC. We are happy to welcome him back to PDP and we urge other members to come back home.”

Also speaking, Mr Noble Igwe, representing Ogbaru I constituency, said “PDP would have won the just concluded governorship election in the state, if Onyebuchi Offor had not defected to APC.”

He said, “Your defection to APC was a big blow to the PDP in Anambra. If you have not defected, PDP would have won the governorship election. But we welcome you back to PDP where you rightly belong.”

Thisis coming barely one week after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Charles Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) as the winner of the Anambra governorship election.
