Crisis hits Benue PDP as 5,000 members decamp to APC

Written By Idoma Television on Saturday, April 2, 2016 | 10:47:00 AM

About 5,000 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have dumped the party and defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in Benue state saying they cannot belong to opposition politics. 

According to Leadership, the defectors included PDP in the MINDA extraction of the Benue North-west senatorial district. The PDP members burnt their membership cards and held the broom to mark their decamping to APC.
Several political units including political clubs and associations in MINDA as well traditional groups were led into the APC fold at the JS Tarka foundation in Makurdi. A unit leader of the defectors from Sherev in Guma LGA, Mike Adyo, said they cannot risk the folly of belonging to the opposition to antagonize the administration of Governor Ortom hence he an indigene of the council area. 

He said they are behind the governor to enhance development.
