Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, who recently left his party the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), has explained his reason for doing so.
Obi who spoke to newsmen during an interactive session with Igbo group in Lagos State said his main reason for joining the PDP was because of his resolve to be strongly involved in President Goodluck Jonathan’s 2015 re-election bid, Daily Sun reports.
He said: “Mr. President is doing very well. He has a lot of policies in place that will transform the country if re-elected. We shall support him fully for the benefit of the country.”
He stated that his defection had nothing to do with APGA as he still enjoys a cordial relationship with the governor of the state, Chief Willie Obiano, adding that he had no grievance against his former party.
