Anambra federal lawmaker decamps to PDP

A federal lawmaker representing Oyi/Anyamelum Federal Constituency of Anambra State in the House of Representatives, Gabriel Onyewinfe has decamped from the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)

In a letter announcing his defection read by the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, the lawmaker said the inability of the party to go by democratic rules during the party’s primaries forced him out of the party.

He also noted that the division within the party which led to the emergence of a factional New-APGA also contributed to his exit from the party.
