500 party members of APC members in Ughelli South Council have decamped to Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
defected members of APC led by former House of Assembly aspirant of the party, Olorogun Samson Okomitie, who said the party has no future in the state.
Speaking during the defection in Ekakpamre community on Saturday, Okomotie 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.
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.
Mr. Okometie was received into the party by Chairman, Ughelli South, Mr. Djegbe Oshetigbo and other party leaders.
