“I didn’t defect from APC, I only resigned” – Peter Obi’s ally, Kenneth Okonkwo [VIDEO]

A chieftain of the Labour Party, Kenneth Okonkwo, has said that he never defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to the veteran Nollywood actor turned politician, he only resigned from the ruling APC and joined the Labour Party months to the 2023 general elections.

“I’m always not very comfortable with the word ‘defection’. I resigned from the APC and joined Labour Party. You defect when you move from a party to another.

“Let’s say you are a member of the National Assembly; and in Nigeria, you must be a member of a political party to run for office or there won’t be any chance for you to resign. In that circumstance, you can defect.

“But when you resign and join another party, that’s not defection,” Okonkwo argued.

Politics Nigeria reports that Okonkwo was an ally of Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate in the last election.

He was also a fearless critic of President Bola Tinubu and the APC government.
