Honourable Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, a former Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Chinedum served as the 11th Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly since June 10, 2019 till June 10, 2023 under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Before now, the lawmaker had announced his official resignation via a letter addressed to the Chairman of PDP in his urban I ward on Monday.

According to him, the move had become very necessary following the trouble tearing the opposition party apart.

“This is to formally notify you of my resignation from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with effect from today.

“Kindly note that this decision is taken after extensive consultations.

“I thank the Party for giving me the platform which culminated in my being elected as Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly.

“Accept my warmest regards,” he said in the letter.

Meanwhile, following his resignation, the former Speaker received his membership card and broom symbol of the APC from the State Chairman of the Party, Dr Kingsley Ononogbu.
