The Enugu state coordinator of the Jonathan/Sambo 2015 campaign organization, Chief Rex Onyeabor, has defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Onyeabor was a member, Board of Trustee, BOT, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and at one time an Acting National Secretary of the party.

Speaking during his defection ceremony at his country home, Ugbawka,‎ Nkanu East local government area of the state, he said he was leaving the PDP because the party was not likely to survive it’s present leadership crisis.

“Apart from being former national secretary, I was BOT member which is the highest advisory body in PDP and I attended a lot of meetings, virtually every meeting, reconciliation meeting.

“There are some people who are still there attending meeting to reconcile; you see what they are doing now, Modu Sheriff and Ahmed Makarfi, and recently Jonathan and Seriake (Dickson); it is not likely that an agreement will be reached very soon.

“So I looked at all the efforts we have made in the past trying to restructure the party, trying to bring the party out of the melancholy or depression of defeat, it has not worked; that’s why I decided to pick my bag and take a walk,” he said.

Chief Onyeabor said that APC provides the best platform for moving Nigeria forward at the moment.

He added that Igbos have now seen the light and will abandon PDP for the APC.
