Awka - All federal and state legislators elected under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra have dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The defecting lawmakers cited the internal crisis in APGA and endless litigations between the two APGA factions of Victor Umeh and Maxi Okwu as the reason for leaving the party, reports ThisDay.
The defectors have written the National Chairman of the PDP seeking waiver to return to the party and apparently contest the parliamentary election under the party in February 2015.
Those that defected included former state governorship aspirant on the platform of APGA and Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Environment, Hon. Uche Ekwunife; Deputy Chairman, House Committee on Capital Market, Chris Emeka Azubogu and three other lawmakers from the state.
