Anambra ElectionsEXCLUSIVE: Hon. Onyebuchi Offor Reveals Why He Returned to PDP from APC

The member representing Ekwusigo constituency in Anambra State House of Assembly, Hon. Onyebuchi Offor, has reacted in an exclusive interview with Ebuka Onyekwelu of The West African Pilot News, why he returned to the People’s Democratic Party –PDP from the All Progressives Congress – APC, about a week after the governorship election.

In the buildup to the Anambra state governorship election, some members of the Anambra State House of Assembly in APGA first decamped to APC. Later PDP members also decamped to APC. Barely one week after the election, Hon. Offor has announced formally his return to the PDP. Speaking on why he returned to the PDP immediately after the election during the interview, Hon. Onyebuchi Offor said the APC is not on ground in Anambra state and that the people of Anambra do not like the party.

“The party is not wanted in Anambra state; the electorates do not like the party as well, so that’s why I left immediately. You can see the trip was not successful. The party doesn’t have any root in the state and the voters do not want the party. Electorates do not want the party, so that’s it.” Hon. Offor said.

In his usual realistic composure, the honourable member went ahead to emphasize that he weighed his options before the election and after the election, he reexamined his position. “I know what I want. So I have gone back to my base”, he said. Concerned about if the PDP received him back without questions when asked if he was received back to the PDP without questions, Hon. Onyebuchi Offor said he has been a member of the PDP for over two decades. And that he was received back without questions.

“I am one of them. I have been in the PDP since 1998. You know, I worked with APC during the governorship election based on family advice. I am not a card-carrying member of APC. When I got there, what I was expecting was not what I saw. APC does not have any bearing here in Anambra state, so I have returned to where I can have a very good sojourn, which is the PDP, that I have been working with since.” Hon. Onyebuchi Offor concluded.

Hon. Onyebuchi Offor, the member representing Ekwusigo constituency in Anambra state House of Assembly is the younger brother of billionaire businessman Sir. Emeka Offor. The speculation, therefore, is that the “family advice” to work with APC which he mentioned in the interview might have come from his elder brother, Sir. Emeka Offor.
