Party’s national leader defects to PDP


National leader of the Progressive Peoples Alliance, PPA and two-time gubernatorial candidate of the party in Anambra State, Mr Godwin Ezeemo, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Ezeemo joined PDP Thursday at his country home in Umuchu, Aguata local government area, where he was received by the PDP state chairman, Chief Ndubuisi Nwobu, and other officials.

The businessman said he decided to hearken to consisted calls on him by the leadership of the party to join their fold.

He however tasked PDP to accommodate his supporters, who he said will be moving into the party with him.

Ezeemo said that his involvement in Nigerian politics has revealed that the electorate believed more in big political parties than the quality of candidates.

He said, β€œWe are only interested in big names here and not in the material that is vying for any post. I have tried for a long time to convince them that coming from a smaller party would even give me better opportunity to work but they seem not to understand. I had to oblige them.”

The politician expressed hope that PDP has put its house in order, and that his governorship ambition would be easily realised in the party than anywhere else.

Earlier, the PDP state chairman, Nwobu recounted what he called the outstanding qualities of Ezeemo which made the party to woo him over the years.

He said PDP would provide Ezeemo a better chance in his genuine effort to improve his society through politics.

β€œIn PDP, it is not how long you have spent with us but the capacity you wield as a party man or woman that counts and Ezeemo is a man of great capacity,” he stated.

The party chairman stated that Ezeemo was a big catch for the party, and that the PDP would communicate to its national leadership, and subsequently organize a befitting welcome rally for him.
