The National Organizing Secretary of the PDP Austin Akobundu has said that the rumoured defection of the Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu to the APC was the work of mischief makers.

In a statement on Wednesday, Akobundu maintained that the Deputy Senate President was not leaving the opposition party for the ruling party.

The organising secretary stated that Ekweremadu has made enormous contributions to the party especially during its trying period and cannot leave at this time when the party has been rebranded and is soaring high to regain power in the country in 2019.

Akobundu said: “Senator Ekweremadu who is holding the highest political office in the region is thinking of how to galvanize the geopolitical area to massively vote out APC and block any other party in the region.

“Intelligence available to the PDP shows that even those who erroneously joined the APC from the area are now full of regrets with some of them even contemplating a return.”
