Thousands of APC members defect to PDP in Benue

There has been a massive defection of All Progressives Congress (APC) members to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Benue state.

The defectors, who on Monday pitched their tents with the PDP in Vandekiya LGA said they defected because of Governor Samuel Ortom’s failed leadership style.

They added that the regime of Ortom had brought bad luck to ‎Benue State, reports Daily Post

APC stalwarts, Hon. Demenongu Unom and Laha Dzever‎ led the defectors.

Unom, who spoke on behalf of the defectors, said he decided to dump the APC alongside his teeming supporters due to the glaring failed leadership style of Ortom.

Benue PDP chairman, Hon John Ngbede, received the defectors and welcomed them to the PDP on behalf of the former governor of the state, Gabriel Suswam.

He said the party was currently mending their broken fences to capture power from the APC in 2019.
