Onyebuchi Offor, the lawmaker representing Ekwusigo State Constituency at the Anambra State House of Assembly, has rejoined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Ekwusigo returns to the PDP weeks after he defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in September, just ahead of the recently concluded Anambra governorship election.
Speaking at the assembly’s plenary in Awka, the state capital, on Thursday, Offor announced that he returned to the PDP following consultation with constituents and stakeholders from his area.
He 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.
“So, I want to humbly inform this house that I’m going back to my party, the PDP.”
“Your defection to APC was a big blow to the PDP in Anambra, but we welcome you back to PDP where you rightly belong,” he added.
Uche Okafor, the Speaker of the House, said it was the constitutional right of the lawmaker to defect from one political party to another, and wished Offor well in his political career.
