No fewer than 10 political parties in Anambra state have collapsed their structures in support of the People Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the forthcoming 2023 general election.

Professor Obiora Okonkwo, the director-general of the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Committee made this known to newsmen at the campaign committee's headquarters in Awka, on Friday, February 3, Nigerian Tribune reported.

According to Okonkwo, the 10 opposition political parties collapsed their structures in support of Atiku because they knew that PDP will win the state.

He added that thousands of opposition party members have defected to the PDP in Anambra since the campaigns started.

Anambra state is believed to be the stronghold of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
