APC Presidential aspirant defect to PDP

Former All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential aspirant, Chief Charles Udeogaranya, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Chief Udeogaranya, at the defection rally organised yesterday in Lagos, said he secured the mandate of his supporters to make the move ahead of the 2019 general elections.

He said his new party, the PDP was ready to take back control of power at the centre, as well as the states he described as PDP traditional states.

He commended Nigerians across board for their overwhelming support and solidarity with the repositioned PDP.

He said: “The interests and movements from the APC to the PDP are indicators of the consensus by Nigerians to rally on the platform of the PDP to end the economic hardship, bloodletting, violence and infrastructural decay that have become the hallmark of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration and return Nigeria to the path of unity, national cohesion and economic prosperity.”

Recall that Udeogaranya was among the four APC presidential aspirants who protested the party’s decision to grant president an automatic second term ticket based on the doctrine of right of first refusal, saying it was incongruous with the rule of law and against the tenets of internal party democracy.
