Chief Apugo who is a member of the PDP Board of Trustees and a founding member of the party revealed that he has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Explaining to journalists his reason for dumping the PDP and renouncing his membership of the BOT at the Sam Mbakwe International cargo airport on Monday, Chief Apugo disclosed that he took the decision as a result of lack of internal democracy in the party which he added, has made the party lose its initial concept.
“We were not in APC before but we have joined now so you cannot say that it is a regional party. It is a national party that will provide Nigerians with a healthy alternative. Those who were failed by the PDP will now find succour in the APC. It is the change the people needed and it will unseat the PDP in 2015,” he said.According to him, “I was a founding member of the PDP. We laboured tirelessly to build the party but today, the concept of the founding fathers is no longer there. In my home state, Abia, the PDP has failed woefully in all sectors and the APC will take over the state because every Abia indigene who wants those amenities that are currently lacking will identify with us and support the APC”.
He added that mass mobilization for APC in Abia State will commence soon.
