Ugonna Ozurigbo, member representing Nkwerre/ Nwangele/Isu/Njaba Federal Constituency, has defected from the All Progressives Congress, APC, to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The lawmaker, who is also a former deputy speaker of the house, made this known on Saturday at his Umuozu ward in the Nwangele Local Government Area of the state.
Ozurigbo also announced his intention to seek a second term in office.
According to him, his reelection would further position his constituency for more dividends.
A statement issued by his media aide, Philip Dike on Sunday read in part, “Hon. Ozurigbo made it known that his intention to run for a second term was on the basis of the huge development he has ushered into the federal constituency.”
