It was a monumental event yesterday as the communities of Umuhu-Ezechi witnessed the mass defection of PDP members to APC.
In their speeches, the new APC members who were received by BenKalu and other top party members of the APC, decried the gross underperformance of PDP in Abia State, citing it as the reason for their defection. They also declared the complete and unwavering support for BenKalu having been convinced of his credibility and sincerity of purpose to develop Bende.
They declared that they no longer had any desire to remain with a party that thrived on the suffering of the people of Abia; a government that thrived on misappropriating the commonwealth of Abians and a government notorious for owing its workers several months of salaries.
The defectors were warmly welcomed by BenKalu and handed the symbolic brooms of APC.
