The mem­ber rep­re­sent­ing Ide­mili North and South federal con­stituency of Anam­bra State in the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, Rep. Charles C. Odedo yes­ter­day de­fected from the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) to the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP).

Odedo is billed to for­mally present his let­ter of de­fec­tion to the Speaker of the House, Aminu Waziri Tam­buwal to­day.

Speak­ing at the PDP na­tional sec­re­tariat yes­ter­day in Abuja, Odedo said his de­ci­sion to de­fect to the PDP was as a re­sult of the pre­vail­ing peace and in­ter­nal democ­racy in the party as well as the move by the present na­tional lead­er­ship of the party to carry ev­ery­body along in the scheme of things.

Re­spond­ing on be­half of the party, Chief Olisa Me­tuh; the PDP’s na­tional pub­lic­ity sec­re­tary, tasked the law­maker to en­sure that he de­liv­ers 98 per­cent of votes in fu­ture elec­tions to the PDP and to deliver the 3 se­na­to­rial zones and all the federal con­stituen­cies to the party say­ing people in the North and the en­tire Nige­ri­ans have re­jected the APC.
