Ex-lawmaker returns to PDP in Akwa Ibom

Patrick Odey, Uyo

A former member of the House of Representatives representing Eket Federal Constituency, Mr Dan Abia, on Wednesday defected from the All Progressives Congress to the Peoples Democratic Party.

Abia is a brother to an APC governorship aspirant and former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Bassey Abia.

He defected alongside another APC chief, Emem Edoho, at a PDP rally in Esit-Eket Local Government Area of the state.

Abia, who said he joined the APC in error, asked his people to forgive him.

He said he decided to return to the PDP having realised that the APC had nothing to offer Akwa Ibom people in particular and Nigerians in general.

He said, “PDP is a religion not only in Akwa Ibom, but here in Esit-Eket and we are back to the fold.

“I am happy to work for the victory of the PDP. APC is an atomistic society perpetually at war with itself. Example abounds in Rivers State.

“We are sorry we made a mistake, we faltered and we have returned home. We will work for the success of our party.

“In view of the fact that the APC is only pretending and is really not visible in most parts of the country, I believe I am not too big to say I am sorry. I made a mistake, I am coming back home to work for the overall success of our great party, the PDP in all the elections.”

The state governor, Udom Emmanuel, promised the people that his administration would do more if re-elected.

Emmanuel announced his intention to construct the Stadium Road, adding that preparations were at an advanced stage for the reactivation of the Akwa Palms Limited.
