Deputy Chairman, House Committee on National Security and a member representing Ideato federal constituency of Imo State, Dr. Eddie Mbadiwe, has defected from the All Progressives Congress, APC to the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
Explaining why he to defect to the PDP, Dr. Mbadiwe said he could not operate where there was no integrity and respect.
The lawmaker claimed those in leadership position in his former party were “stooges of the state government”, stressing that it would amount to political suicide to work with them.
He insisted he preferred to operate with a political party that had internal democracy instead of where one man wielded power where no one could advice him.
