The 2023 political game is looking dicey now as waves of defection seem to be hitting the ruling All Progressives Congress in the north-central state of Benue.
According to sources, top chieftaincy principal members of the APC in Benue resigned on Wednesday, August 4 Among the defectors is the chairman of Kwande LGA, Iorfa Dzoho, who has already joined the PDP alongside his colleagues, Gistmeblog247 reports.
The chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Kwande local government area of Benue, Iorfa Dzoho, with some committee members and executives from about five councils have dropped their membership. The defectors have also pledged to follow a former senatorial candidate in the state, Mimi Adzape-Orubibi, who recently defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking on what influenced his decision on Wednesday, August 4, Dzoho noted that he and the rest left the APC because it marginalised a lot of party chieftains and members, especially during the last ward congresses.
Moreover, he noted that the leader of the PDP in the state, Samuel Ortom, has vowed to give him full inclusion and participation, adding that he believes this since the governor is a man of his word.
