Mr. Godwin James Akpanudoedehe, Elder brother of same father and mother with Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, National Secretary of All Progressive Congress – APC has today defected to the People Democratic Party – PDP in Akwa Ibom State.

Declaring his defection Tuesday at the PDP State Chairman’s Office, Uyo, Mr Godwin Akpanudoedehe elder brother to the APC National Secretary, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, pledged allegiance to PDP and noted that PDP in Akwa Ibom is the only party in the State whose visions and actions align with the collective aspirations of Akwa Ibom people.

He said “The truth is: It is not a coincidence that the generality of Akwa Ibom people have continued to choose PDP as the most preferred political platform which leaders have emerged since the return of democracy in 1999. This is because the PDP has continued to demonstrate by her actions that it means well for the growth and progress of this State. Go around the country and see the mess that other APC States have become. So for me, pitching my tent with the PDP is my way of showing that I believe in the Akwa Ibom dream”.

Mr Akpanudoedehe expressed appreciation to the party for opening her doors for him, stressing that his defection to the party is informed by the need to join the winning team whom he confessed has made remarkable impacts in the state since 1999. Mr. Akpanudoedehe stated that he came in company of his wife to bear him witness promising never to return to the APC.

Receiving the Uyo born politician, the State chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Rt Hon Elder Aniekan Akpan commended Godwin Akpanudoedehe for returning ‘home’ after a political sojourn, adding that the party is ready to accommodate and work with him.

The Akwa Ibom State PDP boss noted “The Umbrella of the PDP is large enough to accommodate every Akwa Ibom person willing to join the PDP family. We are therefore urging our brothers and sisters who went on Political exile to different Parties but have been indicating interest to return home.”

Commenting on the development, the political leader of Uyo, Prince Enobong Uwah described the defection as a welcome development and a big plus to the PDP. He thanked the State Chairman of the PDP for opening the doors of the Party for Mr Akpanudoedehe stating that the leadership and members of the PDP in Uyo will receive, accommodate and work with him.
