APC chieftain opposes Nwobodo's defection from PDP

Jim Nwobodo
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu state, Osita Okechukwu, on Monday expressed dismay at last weekend's defection of the former governor of old Anambra State, Senator Jim Nwobodo, from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC.

Okechukwu in a statement made available to newsmen in Enugu insisted that before joining the now ruling party, Nwobodo should first clear himself of the allegation that he benefited from the Dasuki arms deal money, noting dumping his party midway amounted to "running away from justice".

Okechukwu who said he could not attend the party meeting where the former governor joined the APC as he was away to Bayelsa for the supplementary gubernatorial election said the cardinal war against corruption remained the cardinal programme of their party.
"To be candid, Chief Nwobodo used to be our model, a principled politician and a Zikist; but in more than a decade he has shed his principle and kind of descended into the arena of Food is Ready politicians.”
