A former Nigerian Ambassador to Mexico and Canada, Prof Iorwuese Hagher, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Hagher registered as a member of the APC in his Utange Ward in Katsina-Ala Local Government Area of Benue State before the APC Ward Chairman, Orduuga Tyokegh.

He explained after his registration after his defection was not to look for favour in the APC, but to assist the APC godfather in the state, Senator George Akume, who was the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).

He said, “I have found rest. I am not in APC to look for a job, I have joined the APC to help. I am here to assist my friend, Senator (Dr) George Akume who is the first Tiv man to be SGF, and he is also the leader of the APC.

“All politics is local, and the Shitile people where I come from have always voted for APC. Therefore, I have decided to join them.”
