APC Secretary, Youth Leader, others defect to PDP with hundreds of supporters in Agbarho

With less than six days to the Local Government Council elections in Delta State, over 500 members of the opposition All Progressive Congress, APC, including its Secretary, Youth Leader and other key stakeholders, Monday, defected to the People’s Democratic Party, PDP in Agbarho, Ughelli North.

The decampees from the APC and other political parties were formally received into the PDP fold during a mega rally of the party in Agbarho by the Local Government Caretaker Committee Chairman, Pastor Kesiena Nomuoja, the Delta State Commissioner for Transport, Onoriode Aguofure and other stakeholders of the party.

Addressing the decampees, the PDP Ughelli North Local Government Caretaker Committee Chairman, Pastor Kesiena Nomuoja said the harvest of the defectors was a proof that PDP was doing very well in Agbarho.

He pointed that PDP was the only party on ground and has done so much for the people of Agbarho, adding that the forthcoming local government elections was going to be one hundred percent victory for the PDP.

He assured the new members of a level playing ground for them, saying in the PDP there is no such thing as old or new members, but that all members are equal.

He urged them to work hard for the party and ensure they woo others who according to him are still in the dark so as to secure total victory for the party not just in the coming local government elections but in all subsequent elections in the state.

In the same vein, the State Commissioner for Transport, Onoriode Aguofure charged the decampees to be loyal and abide by the rules and regulations of the party, adding that there is enough dividends of democracy to go round.

Speaking on behalf of the decampees, Joshua Ekwere, former APC youth leader in Ekwere-Agbarho said they have decided to join the PDP due to the good work they have seen being done by the present governor of the state, Sheriff Oborewori.

He said, “I’m joining PDP today because I like what our governor is doing. All I have ever wished for was for a leader that will develop Delta state and make life better for her people. So when I see someone, in the person of Governor Sheriff Oborewori, and what he has been doing in just one year in office, I was marvelled. I said to myself, if someone is doing what I want for my people, the best thing to do is to join and support the person, that is why I’m here today to join the PDP.”

Also speaking, a former APC leader in Agbarho, Chief Friday Obada said they were impressed by what the PDP was doing in the state and in Agbarho in terms of development and empowerment of her people.

He promised to employ all necessary means to ensure that PDP wins all seats in the forthcoming local government elections and all other elections in the area
