The Abia State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has mocked the All Progressives Congress, APC, following the defection of 3,000 members. PDP said the tears of APC has just started “pouring” in the State.
APC had described the claim of 3,000 of its members defecting to PDP as a “tales by moonlight.”
PDP’s State Chairman, Asiforo Okere during a stakeholders’ meeting in Umuahia, the state capital, said the decampees were also from the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA.
But, APC rubbished the defection claim by Okere. However, the party’s state Publicity Secretary, Fabian Nwankwo pointed out to Abia APC that their “tears has only just started pouring and very soon, your crying will graduate into mourning”.
Nwankwo wondered; “why anyone in their right senses would doubt the defection of Abians to the PDP seeing the sterling performances of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu which are so good that even more Abians have been inundating us with requests to join the PDP.”
