Ahead 2023, Nigerian politicians begin re-alignment
By John Eche
Ahead of the 2023 polls, Nigerian politicians have commenced re-alignment moves.
The latest is of two House of Assembly members who dumped the APC in favour of the PDP in Benin recently.
Hinging their decision on what they termed the decision within their former party, the two members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Edo State House of Assembly announced that they had decided to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
They are the former Deputy Speaker, who represents Akoko-Edo 1, Yekini Idaiye and his Orhionmwon East Constituency counterpart, Nosayaba Okunbor.
Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Hon. Marcus Onobun read their letters of resignation on the floor of the House.
“I took this decision because of the internal crisis in the party from my ward to the council level, which led to the factions in the party for some time now.
“It is on this note that I decided to resign my membership of the APC and officially defect to the PDP,” the letter penned by Idaiye underscored.
Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State had earlier left the PDP for the APC.
