End Of The Year Mass Defection Hits APC, As Over 5,000 Members Dump The Ruling Party To PDP In Grand Style

The All Progressives Congress, APC, lost over 5,000 members to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ika North-East Local Government Area of Delta State.

The decampees, led by APC chieftain, Comrade Ebenezer Obiazorkwo, and the seven APC Ward Chairmen in Ika North-East, were received by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, during a PDP meeting held at Ute Okpu.

Obiazorkwo said the development marked the final death of their former party in the area.

“We decided to follow the light, truth, and the State Governor, who has shown leadership style that has brought peace, unity, and development across the State”, he stated.

He and other Ward Leaders, assured Okowa of their total loyalty, and promised: “never to return to Egypt”.

Speaking, Okowa assured the defectors that they made the best decision.

He said the PDP will ensure that everyone is given equal treatment, while assuring Delta people of more dividends of democracy in 2018.
