500 APC members defect to PDP in Delta

The All Progressives Congress in Ughelli South Council Area of Delta State has lost over 500 members to the Peoples Democratic Party owing to the leadership crisis rocking the state chapter of the party.

The defecting members led by a former House of Assembly aspirant of the party, Olorogun Samson Okomitie, saying there was no future for the APC in the state.

Okomitie, who spoke during the defection in Ekakpamre community on Saturday, said they had decided to dump the ruling party at the centre following the lingering leadership crisis rocking the state and council leadership of the party in the state.

He noted that with the unresolved leadership tussle in the state chapter, there was no hope that the party could win any elective election in the 2019 General Election in the Country.

According to Okomitie, “We have decided to leave the All Progressive Congress because of the lingering leadership tussle rocking the party from wards, local government and state level without any attempt by the party hierarchy to settle the crises.

“For some of us, it has become evident that there is no party like PDP in Delta and it was also obvious that APC has a lot to do to compete with PDP in Delta considering extent the party had gone in the state with massive development.”

He added that the development stride of the state governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa and the internal democracy within the state chapter of the PDP convinced him and his supporters to join the ruling party from the opposition APC.

The defectors who were received by Ughelli South PDP Chairman, Mr Djegbe Oshetigho and other party leaders from the area, saying the party was open and ready to receive members of the opposition parties ahead of the 2019 elections.
