I’m back in PDP —Ekwunife

Abuja—The Progressive Peoples Alliance, PPA,  governorship candidate in the recently concluded Anambra election, Mrs. Uche Ekwunife, said in Abuja that she was back to the PDP.

Ekwunife was elected in 2007 on the platform of PDP into the House of Representatives to represent Anaocha/Njikoka/Dunukofia Federal Constituency of Anambra.

But in October 2009, she defected to the PPA and was selected as the party flag bearer in the February 6, gubernatorial election. With this, the PDP leadership suspended her alongside other party members who left the party to other parties to realise their political ambitions.Upon losing the election, she came back to the House of Representatives amidst cheers from her colleagues.

In an interview with newsmen, Ekwunife said she was back to PDP for good. “Yes Am back in  the PDP family, the struggle continues,’’ she said.

Ekwunife added that she had no regrets so far in contesting in the election. Speaking on the development, Rep Ita Enang, Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Rules and Business, said that there was nothing against the rules of the House in what she did.
