The coordinator of the 2015 Goodluck Jonathan presidential campaign in Enugu state, Chief Rex Onyeabor, has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Onyeabor was previously a member of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Board of Trustees (BOT).
He defected to the ruling party at a ceremony in his country home in the Nkanu East Local Government Area of the state.
“Apart from being former national secretary, I was BOT member which is the highest advisory body in PDP and I attended a lot of meetings, virtually every meeting, reconciliation meeting,” he said according to Vanguard.
“There are some people who are still there attending meeting to reconcile; you see what they are doing now, Modu Sheriff and Ahmed Makarfi, and recently Jonathan and Seriake (Dickson); it is not likely that an agreement will be reached very soon.
“So I looked at all the efforts we have made in the past trying to restructure the party, trying to bring the party out of the melancholy or depression of defeat, it has not worked; that’s why I decided to pick my bag and take a walk,” he added.
Onyeabor also said that the APC might not be the best party in the world but it was better than other parties in Nigeria today.
