ASABA— HUNDREDS of All Progressives Congress, APC, members from Arhavwarien kingdom in Ughelli south, Delta State, yesterday, defected to the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
The decampees, who spoke in one accord, said it would be a sign of ingratitude if they belong to any other than the PDP.
They commended Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for appointing Olorogun Jennifer Adasen as Commissioner for Science and Technology, saying it is the first such high profile appointment in the history of the Arhavwarien kingdom.
They also promised to ensure victory for the party in the 2023 general elections.
While receiving the APC decampees , the Commissioner for Science and Technology, Olorogun Adasen, thanked them for the realization that “Arhavwarien has every reason to support Governor Okowa.”
Receiving them alongside the community’s PDP Exco, the ward Secretary and Vice Chairman, the Science and Technology Commissioner assured them that they will be given every “support and treated equally in the scheme of things,” describing them as “brothers and sisters who have come to discover for themselves that the PDP is the only party in the area.”
She charged them to carry the PDP 5/5 message to all nooks and cranny of the area , adding that the “umbrella is wide enough to cover more decampees.”
