PDP House of Representa­tives member set to decamp to APC

by on February 6, 2017

The member repre­senting Bende Fed­eral Constituency in the House of Representa­tives, Hon Nnenna Elendu Ukeje, is set to defect to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), a top of­ficial of the party in Abia State has disclosed.

The party official said at the weekend that but for the last minute hitches Hon Ukeje would have dumped her party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alongside Senator Andy Uba.

Uba, who like Ukeje, was elected on the PDP platform and is serving his second term in the Na­tional Assembly, has last week announced his de­fection from PDP to APC.

According to the party officer who did not want his name mentioned, Uba had led Ukeje to several meetings with the party leadership in Abuja and on the modalities for dumping PDP and what would be at stake for her in APC.

He added that she ap­peared uncomfortable with some of the propositions.

“You know Andy Uba is Nnenna’s godfather. He was responsible for help­ing her come to the House in 2007, 2011, and in 2015. She looks up to him for political direction. So, for Andy to have joined APC in a matter of weeks, Nnenna will follow”, he boasted.

The APC chief also said  that Rep Ukeje, stands a bright­er chance of securing a plum position in the APC-dominated House by virtue of her good looks, intelli­gence and by the fact that she is a ranking member.
