Peter Obi leaves APGA for PDP

According to a statement by Obi’s media aide, Valentine Obienyem, said that the former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Obi said the issue of joining a national party is not about happening in his former party All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), but because of the need to be a competitor and not a spectator in national affairs.
“I have in the past worked closely with all of you and you know my belief about our zone working together. I assure you that we will continue to work even closer as a team in the interest of our people,” Obi said.
Those who visited Peter Obi were the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekwerumadu, Deputy Speaker, Emeka Ihedioha, Secretary to the Federal Government, Sen. Pius Anyim Pius.
Others in the entourage included the Governor of Akwa-Ibom State, Dr. Godswill Akpabio, former Governor Okwesilieze Nwodo, former Senate President, Adolphus Wabara, Sen. Uche Chukwumerije, Sen. Hope Uzodinma, Sen. Ben Obi, Sen. Igwe Paulinus, and Former Aviation Minister, Kema Chikwe.
