Former PDP spokesman defects to APC

26 December 2015, 16:00

Calabar - The ranks of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River State has continued to swell as a former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Venatius Ikem has defected to the party, reports NewsDay.

He defected on Thursday with a former governorship aspirant in the sate, Godwin Jedy-Agba and thousands of his supporters.

Ikem left the PDP about one week after the third republic Governor of the state, Clement Ebri, joined the APC.

Ikem said his spirit had long left the PDP because of the culture of impunity that crept into, it especially in recent years.

He said though it took a while for him to formally declare his membership of the APC, he was waiting for the appropriate time to do so.

The former PDP members were received into the APC fold by the Chairman of the Central senatorial district of the APC, Cletus Obun and the Obudu chapter Chairman of the party, Mathias Ugbelishor at the function that was held at the Liyel Imoke Civic Centre.
