A member of the Anambra House of Assembly, Onyebuchi Offor, who dumped the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) for the All Progressives Congress(APC) in the buildup to the November 6 governorship election, has returned to PDP.
Offor, who is the member representing Ekwusigo State Constituency and Minority Leader of the Assembly, announced his return to the PDP during plenary on Thursday.
While announcing his return, Offor said: “Two months ago, I announced my defection from PDP to APC on the floor of this House. I have tested the waters and realised that my former party, PDP, is better.
“So, I want to humbly inform this House that I’m going back to my party, PDP.”
Reacting, the member representing Idemili-South State Constituency, Chuka Ezewunne, described Offor’s defection during the poll as a great temptation.
“As a founding member of PDP, I know Offor well and he is a good friend, though temptation drew him to APC. We are happy to welcome him back to PDP and we urge other members to come back home,” Ezewunne said.
Also, Emeka Aforka, representing Orumba North Constituency, urged the lawmakers who defected from the All Progressives Grand Alliance(APGA) to APC in the building up to the election to return.
He said: “APGA is the winning party in Anambra and home to all. I urge members who left APGA to emulate Offor and come back home.”
No fewer than seven members of the Anambra State House of Assembly and the deputy governor of the state, Dr Nkem Okeke, dumped their political parties for the APC in the build up to the governorship election.
