A former Senate President and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ken Nnamani, has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He dumped PDP, a party under which he became prominent in politics on Sunday at his home town in Amechi-Uwani, Enugu South Local Government Area of Enugu State.
He formalized his defection when he registered as a member of the APC in the party’s ongoing re-registration exercise in Enugu state. The party had said it was embarking on a new membership drive owing to the crash of its database in the zone which led to the disappearance of members’ record
The former Senate president was reported to have said that impunity and undemocratic practices had killed PDP, adding that the party was now a dead party.
Members of the APC said to have witnessed his registration and reception of the membership card included the vice chairman, South-East, Chief Emma Eneukwu, chairman of Enugu State chapter of the party, Dr. Ben Nwoye, Director General of Voice of Nigeria, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, among others.
Meanwhile, critics have fingered his recent appointment as the head of the Electoral Reform Committee, set up by President Muhammadu Buhari, as what may have warranted his defection to the ruling APC.
