Chairman of the Accord Party in Anambra State, Bartho Igwedibia has said the resignation of Mr Peter Obi from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has become a blessing in disguise for smaller parties in the state.

Igwedibia, who made the assertion while briefing journalists at the state secretariat of the party on Thursday in Awka, urged Obi to join his party.

According to him, the exit of Mr Peter Obi from the PDP is like a thunderbolt to his former party but a very joyous development for smaller parties like Accord in the state.

“As you might have heard, many aspirants who bought forms to contest state assembly, house of representatives or senate in PDP are resigning in their numbers.

“A good number of people have been buying forms in our party since Wednesday and I make bold to call on His Excellency, Mr Peter Obi, to equally take advantage and come to Accord because we have a veritable platform for him to achieve his presidential ambition,” he said.
