Former Senator who represented Abia North at the National Assembly, Senator Emma Nwaka, in a media briefing said that those defecting to the ruling All Progressive Congress APC are either doing so to escape prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), or to “partake in the ongoing massive looting of the country”.
The former Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Abia State, also accused APC of plundering and setting Nigeria backwards.
Nwaka who also dispelled the rumour of Gov. Ikpeazu’s possible defection to APC, said ” there is no attraction in APC”.
His words:” I wonder why the renegades jumping into APC find attractive about it. A party that has set Nigeria backwards in every measurable sphere of life.”
Senator Nwaka who insisted on a power shift to Abia North and precisely Isuikwuato in 2023, predicted the implosion of the ruling party in the months ahead.
“APC will soon implode and all those jumping into it either to escape being held accountable for their crimes against the people or just to partake in the ongoing looting spree will have themselves to blame”, Nwaka declared.
He commended Gov. Ikpeazu for restating his commitment to PDP against his rumoured planned defection which he said only exists in the imagination of the peddlers.
