2 Labour Party Lawmakers defect to PDP

by on April 5, 2017
The only two mem­bers of the Labour Party (LP) in the Delta State House of Assembly, Hon Evans Ochuko Ivwurie, rep­resenting Ethiope East Constituency and Hon Peter Okabare Uviejito­bor, representing Udu Constituency, have de­fected to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Their defection means that the Assembly will soon become a one-party legislature.
The notice of the de­fection of the duo was read on the floor of the House by the Speaker, Hon Monday Igbuya, on Tuesday.
With Ivwurie’s defec­tion to PDP, it means he has also dumped his for­mer political godfather, Chief Great Ogboru, who had earlier joined the APC unceremoniously. Both of them are from the same town, Abraka in Ethiope East Local Gov­ernment Area.
The former Minority Leader of the Assembly and member representing Ika South Constituency, Hon Festus Okoh, had last week also defected to the PDP from the Accord Party of Nigeria.
The only opposition lawmaker remaining in the House, Hon Efe Ofobruku, representing Uvwie Constituency un­der the Social Democrat­ic Party (SDP) is believed to be a PDP member by proxy.
