Enugu State witnessed a significant political shift as notable figures, including former Minister of Aviation, Ambassador Fidelia Njeze, and Senator Chukwuka Utazi, officially defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The announcement of their defection was made at the APC’s secretariat in Enugu, where they were warmly received by top party officials, including Chief Uche Nnaji, Minister of Innovation, Science, and Technology, Chief Emma Eneukwu, APC National Deputy Chairman, South, and Dr. Ijeoma Arodiogbu, APC National Vice Chairman, South-East.


Among those who joined the APC alongside Ambassador Njeze and Senator Utazi were Davidson Nnamani, Princess Juliet Oloto, Chika Idoko, Jonathan Eze, Mr. Umunna Ugwu, and Ezi-Obodo Amechi Idodo of the Young Progressives Party (YPP).

Senator Utazi, who represented Enugu North Senatorial district from 2015 to 2023, cited the desire for Igbo presidency and the need to align with the political mainstream as reasons for his defection.

Expressing her intentions, Mrs. Njeze emphasized bringing peace and progress to the party, pledging loyalty to the APC and its objectives.

In his address, Chief Emma Eneukwu urged the defectors to uphold party discipline and focus on electoral victories, emphasizing the importance of unity and hard work in achieving political success.

Dr. Ijeoma Arodiogbu appealed for unity among the new members, stressing the symbolic significance of the broom as a representation of unity within the party.

Similarly, Barr. Ugochukwu Agballah urged party members to strengthen the party’s grassroots presence, highlighting the importance of ward-level engagement and participation.

The defection of these prominent figures signifies a significant shift in Enugu State’s political landscape and could have far-reaching implications for future elections.
