PDP Governor Set To Defect To APC

There are reports that Governor Udom Emmanuel of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is set to defect to the All Progressive Congress (APC).

Recall that Senator Ita Enang had earlier claimed that Governor Emmanuel was making subtle moves to join the APC.

Citing the governor’s recent romance with APC stakeholders, including the invitation of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Senate President Ahmed Lawan for projects inauguration, Enang concluded that “Udom Emmanuel is now a member of the APC.”

The PDP has however reacted to the allegations of Governor Emmanuel’s planned defection describing it as false.

Reacting to Monday, October 11, the spokesman of the Akwa Ibom state chapter of the PDP, Borono Bassey, described Enang’s claim as false.

Bassey said he was not surprised at the rumours, adding that APC is always struggling to have a performing governor like Udom Emmanuel in order to validate its failure in the state.

He said: “The truth is that the governor has said it over and over again and as a party, we have made releases that the governor is not going anywhere.

“I like to think that people just want to draw attention to themselves because they know that people will be interested in hearing about this.” Rep member defects to APC ahead of 2023.”
