He promised to work with other progressive-minded members to ensure the APC’s victory in the 2027 elections.

Reacting, the Chairman of the APC, Item Ward B in Bende Local Government Area, Chief Anthony Onyekwere, and his ward executives expressed optimism about the bold step taken by the defectors, assuring of level playing field.

He said “It is a thing of joy that our brother has come on board, and his decision to join APC will help APC produce the next State House of Assembly member.
