Anxiety has enveloped supporters of Senator Emmanuel Azu Agboti, who represented Ebonyi South Senatorial District on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) following rumours that he is planning to defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Agboti, a major stakeholder in Ebonyi State, who hails from Afikpo, however, said he was still negotiating with APC and expressed surprise that his rumoured defection was making headlines.
“I don’t know why my case is making headline. If anybody wants to defect, I don’t think it is a big deal. I am still negotiating and when I am ready, I will call for a press conference; but for now, I am still in PDP”, he declared.
Rumours were rife last week, within the PDP family, especially those from Ebonyi South that the former acting deputy national secretary of PDP, senator was planning to dump the party for APC.
