PDP will take over Ebonyi House of Assembly’ — Anyim Predicts massive APC defections

By Chinwe Imo-Eze Onwosi

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, 2023 Presidential aspirant and former Secretary to the Government of the Federation(SGF), Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, Tuesday expressed optimism that massive defections would rock the All Progressives Congress, APC, as Lawmakers will join the PDP in the State.

Anyim, who stated this while addressing members of the party during an enlarged meeting of the party in Abakaliki, noted that the party will soon take over the leadership of the current House of Assembly.

This is following the move by 15 APC Lawmakers on Monday when they elected the member representing Afikpo North-West constituency and Deputy Leader of the House as the Assembly’s Deputy Speaker after a letter allegedly written by the Deputy Speaker, Chief Obasi Odefa revealed that he has resigned as a member of the House.

The purported letter which was read on the floor of the House by the Speaker, Chief Francis Nwifuru, led to the declaration of Hon Odefa’s seat vacant by the Speaker.

Sen Anyim while reacting to this said “I want to assure you, by next month many more will join these our Lawmakers and by the time they know it, we will take over Ebonyi state House of Assembly.

“Without these nine Lawmakers, you can’t get 2/3rd majority to do anything in Ebonyi House of Assembly. He accused 15 Lawmakers of the Assembly who are members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) of desperation in a bid to maintain control of the House.

Sen Anyim reacting said “Some people desperately are forging signatures, some people desperately are concocting members. But the fact cannot lie. Our house of Assembly members are intact, nine of them are here as you can see in this meeting.

“In this family today, we have a big fish, a member of APC BoT, a leader, a critical stakeholder in Ebonyi, the pride of Ebonyi state government, he is here with us. It is my singular honour on behalf of this caucus to present to you, Chief Austin Edeze. The empire is crumbling, it has started. It will continue to crumble”.

On his part, the Senator representing Ebonyi North and former Governor of the state, Sam Egwu urged PDP members to remain steadfast and committed to the programmes and agenda of the party
