With the elections next year, political watchers, this is a good time to begin sipping your tea because things are about to get interesting!
Peter Obi, former Governor of Anambra State has officially left the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and has joined Nigeria’s ruling party – People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The official switch took place today at his home in Onitsha.
National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Olisa Metuh led the delegation at Peter Obi’s home. The Guardian Newspaper reports that he had this to say to Peter Obi:
“We need you not to sabotage the aspiration of the president. We have noted your importance and the party believes that at this critical point it is imperative for you to come and join the PDP. The PDP is the only party that fosters unity, others are ethnic based.”
He also noted that “the PDP never lost any election to any party; we always lost to Peter Obi.”
