While defecting, the APC members set their brooms ablaze and embraced the PDP at the endorsement rally organised at the zone.
The defectors, who were led by a former acting Chairman of the APC in the state, Mr Gilbert Chikwado-Chukwu, declared their rejection of the APC, calling their action historic and the triumph of light and hope.
Chikwado-Chukwu, speaking on behalf of others, stated their decision to join the ruling party because of the good governance and massive infrastructure the state was enjoying under the party.
The chairman of the party in the state, Augustine Nnamani received the former APC members to the PDP and handed over the umbrella to them.
He lauded them for taking the right step and assured them that the PDP would give them all the privileges being enjoyed by members.
Meanwhile, the five local government areas that make up Enugu West Senatorial Zone were Aninri, Awgu, Ezeagu, Oji River, and Udi.
