The Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance,(APGA), in Ohafia Local Government Area of Abia state, Chief Kalu Mba Nwoke, has dumped the party for the governing All Progressives Congress,(APC).

This is coming as defection of the 2015 and 2019 APGA gubernatorial candidate, Dr Alex Otti thickens. Sources disclosed that Otti would likely announce his defection to APC in the coming weeks.

Mba Nwoke, on his facebook page with the name Etiokwe Eri Okwe, also indicated that Alex Otti would be joining him at APC in no distant time. According to him:

"Now that Dr. Alex Otti have decided to join the APC, all lovers of Abia who desire positive change and redemption of the state should embrace this and leave personal interest aside. All the governorship aspirants in APC shall present themselves for a free, fair and transparent primaries, at the end of the primaries, whoever emerge winner shall receive the full support of all to see that we win in the general elections."


Speaking in Ohafia, during the weekend, Mba Nwoke said he defected to a new party with hundreds of APGA Stakeholders and members, assuring that with their entry into the APC, the PDP and APGA would be extinct and buried in 2023.

According to the APGA Chairman, “I have officially joined APC. With my latest joining of APC and the support of men and women of goodwill of Asaga community and other communities of Ohafia ward and those already in APC, I assure everyone that our new party, APC, is going to win in all future elections in Ohafia ward of Ohafia LGA”.

The APGA defectors were received into the All Progressives Congress(APC) fold by the Ward and LGA Chairmen and Stakeholders, where the APC leaders urged the new members to obey the party’s constitution as well as joining in the Progressives move to enthrone the needed governance in Abia state.
