Ex-APC Deputy Governorship candidate joins PDP

The former deputy governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), in the 2019 elections, Barrister Helen Boco, has dumped the ruling party for the Peoples Democratic Party ,PDP, in Cross River state.

Her defection is coming barely 49 days before the Presidential and National Assembly elections scheduled for February 25, 2023. 

According to her, reasons for her sudden defection to the  PDP despite having worked to build APC from the scratch was occasioned by the marginalization by the party leadership.

Her words :" I am not a member of APC anymore.  As you can see I have registered with PDP. I got my PDP membership card yesterday. 

"I  am happy to be in a new political party, at least for once, the grass rooters have been heard and listened to," she said.

The former Deputy Governorship candidate further explained that she was a foundational member of the ruling APC till January 6th, 2023.

"I was until January 6th, a foundational member of the APC. I have been in the party from the scratch, we built the party, until the governor joined us in the party and we were happy, that power has come to our door step, but today, there is no joy in APC.

"Of recent last year, I also contested for the APC national women leader , which I was denied after much sacrifices, meanwhile, I was the voice of the grassroot."

"There is no joy in APC, boys in the grass root are not smiling. The legacy members are not happy. Those of us that built APC are nowhere.  We are not appreciated, we are not recognized, they want to retire us.

"So at this point in time, I have been recognized by his Excellency, Atiku Abubakar, I have been appointed into an independent campaign council, and I have accepted his appointment, I am ready, the grassroot are ready, to work massively in his support," she stated.
