Mass Defection Hit Benue APC As Over 7,000 Aggrieved Members Dump Party For PDP

Some 7,000 aggrieved members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Thursday defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at Otukpa, Ogbadibo Local Government Area of Benue State.




The defectors who also dumped their APC membership card,s were led to the opposition by Mathew Ochigbo a one time chairman of the party in Ogbadibo.


Ochigbo said they were leaving the APC for the PDP in order to support the aspiration and wishes of the people of Idoma land and to lend their support to the reelection bid of the former Senate President, David Mark.


Receiving the defectors, Director General of the David Mark reelection campaign organisation, Abba Moro lauded the consistent support of the people of the area to the PDP.


Moro said: “What over 7,000 of you have done today in Otukpa clearly shows that those who recently left the PDP after riding on the crest of the party and the goodwill of Senator David Mark are standing alone even in their own localities.


“The coming rerun election will be an opportunity for all Idoma sons and daughters to move against the wicked plot of some external forces to demean our people.


“It will also be a better platform for us to publicly demonstrate our unalloyed support to a course that holds a better prospect for our people in general.”
