A lawmaker representing Ekwusigo State Constituency in the Anambra House of Assembly, Onyebuchi Offor has returned to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Offor announced his return to the PDP on Thursday at plenary in Awka.
He said his decision followed “wide consultation with constituents and stakeholders from his area.
“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, the PDP.”
Member representing Idemili-South Constituency, Chuka Ezewunne, who welcomed Mr. Offor back to the party said, “As a founding member of PDP, I know Mr Offor well and he is a good friend too, though temptation drew him to APC.
“We are happy to welcome him back to PDP and we urge other members to come back home.”
Noble Igwe, representing Ogbaru I Constituency also said “PDP would have won the just concluded governorship election in the state, if Offor had not defected to APC.
“Your defection to APC was a big blow to the PDP in Anambra. If you have not defected, PDP would have won the governorship election.
“But we welcome you back to PDP where you rightly belong.”
Mr. Offor, the Minority Leader of the House, had defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) on October 6, shortly before the Anambra governorship election.
