Our members who defected to APC lured with N50m, lands – Imo PDP

The Secretary of the Imo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, Hon. Nze Ray Emeana, has said members of the party, including those of the Imo State House of Assembly, who defected to the All Progressives Congress did so because they were induced.
The party Secretary stated this in reaction to the gale of defections that had hit the party since the Supreme Court last week declared Senator Hope Uzodinma of the APC the duly elected governor of the state.
The Supreme Court had sacked Hon. Emeka Ihedioha of the PDP as the governor of the state.
No fewer than 10 lawmakers in the state House of Assembly have defected from the PDP to the APC.
Reacting to the development, Emeana said there was no crisis in the PDP to warrant defection.
He alleged that the PDP lawmakers who defected to the APC were lured with a promise of N50 million and two plots of land in Owerri by the state government, which he said is desperate to have a majority in the state Assembly.
He said: “The party is not in any crisis because no substantial person has left the party yet.
“All those who have defected to the APC we learnt were lured with the offer of N50 million and two plots of the lands in Owerri.
“This is to tell you that no substantial member of the party with political clout has left the party.
“All those people have defected were made by the party.”
