  • The development, according to a PDP member, Abdul-Aziz Na'ibi Abubakar, will come across to Nyesom Wike as good news

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) witnessed a tsunami of defection which came in the form of resignation within its ranks in just one day, Tuesday, April 23.

The defections started with the resignation letter of a former governor of Imo state, Emeka Ihedioha, who claimed that his reason for resigning was based on the view that the PDP has lost its place as Nigeria's foremost opposition political party.
