The former Deputy Speaker of Anambra state House of Assembly, Ozo Ughamadu, has dumped the APC for PDP.

At the weekend, Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Environment and a member representing Njikoka/ Anaocha/Dunukofia Federal Constituency, Uche Ekwunife, found her way back into PDP and predicted that others of her ilk would soon follow suit.

Ozo Ughamadu, who has represented Awka South State Constituency twice on the platform of PDP, on Tuesday, told his ward members at Nibo, his hometown near Awka, that he was done with APC.

He said he joined the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in the first place because of lack of internal democracy, which in PDP then and a series of crisis that engulfed the party.

According to him, internal democracy is now practiced in PDP and he has no choice than to return to the party. He said: “I joined APC because of internal democracy, which has been sorted out in PDP now”.

Asked how he felt leaving Chris Ngige, who many of APC members venerated before now, Ughamadu, who is a political scientist, replied: “Senator Ngige remains my friend but politically I now belong to the PDP household and its fundamental principles”.
