The lawmaker representing Ekwusigo Constituency in the Anambra House of Assembly, Onyebuchi Offor, has rejoined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Offor, who is the House Minority Leader, joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) on October 6.

He announced his return to the PDP at Thursday’s plenary in Awka.

The lawmaker said the decision to return to PDP was taken after consultation with constituents and stakeholders from the area.

Offor said: “Two months ago, I announced my defection from PDP to APC on the floor of this House. I have tested the waters and realised that my former party PDP is better.

The lawmaker representing Idemili-South constituency, Chuka Ezewunne, welcomed Offor back to the party.

He said: “As a founding member of PDP, I know Offor well and he is a good friend too, though temptation drew him to APC.

“We are happy to welcome him back to PDP and we urge other members to come back home.”
