A member representing Ugwunagbo Constituency in the Abia State House of Assembly, Hon Munachim Alozie, has announced the resignation of his membership of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party in the state.

He also resigned as the Majority Chief Whip of the State Assembly.

Recall that Alozie was elected twice on the platform of the PDP during the 2015 and  2019 general elections held in Abia State.

Disclosing the development in a letter addressed and read by the Speaker, Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, on Tuesday, during the house’s plenary session, Hon Munachim Alozie, thanked the leadership of the State House of Assembly for their support and cooperation while he held sway as the Chief Whip of the house.

The Abia lawmaker hinted that his actions were necessitated by his defection to another political party after the concluded PDP primaries held across the state.

He further urged his colleagues to join hands together irrespective of party affiliations so they can take Abia to greater heights.

Similarly, sequel to the resignation of the member representing Ugwunagbo  Constituency at the Abia State House of Assembly, the Speaker, Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, announced Hon Thomas Nkoro as the new Majority Chief Whip of the house.

He made this known during the Assembly’s plenary session on Wednesday in Umuahia, the state capital.

Orji hinted that the emergence of Nkoro succeeded Hon Munachim Alozie, following due consultation with members and leadership of the State House of Assembly.
