EDO 2016 | APC Chieftains in mass defection to PDP

by on July 20, 2016
As the Edo State governorship election hots up, the immediate past Chairman of Etsako Central Local Govern­ment Area, Hon Em­manuel Momoh, has left the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
The former coun­cil boss, who defected alongside other top APC leaders in the area, de­clared support for Pas­tor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, saying the government of Comrade Adams Os­hiomhole is an expired product.
Speaking at an im­promptu rally held at his residence in Fugar, Hon Momoh said he resigned from the APC to fulfil his long desire to follow Ize-Iyamu whom he said he believes in.
He added that Osh­iomhole was ungrateful with their huge supports during the last governor­ship election.
He said, “Undue cau­tion breeds stagnation. I am coming out to de­clare to the whole world today that I resign my membership of the APC and I have decided to join the PDP.”
The PDP state Chair­man, Chief Dan Osi Orbih, who received the defectors, thanked them for joining the win­ning team, noting that it would be easy to deliver Etsako to PDP.
On his part, Ize-Iyamu who welcomed Hon Momoh back to the PDP, stressed that there would be no discrimi­nation against them. He added that during the last presidential election, the PDP won four of the six local governments in Edo North where the governor is a native. He said that with the com­bined effort of all and sundry, PDP is assured of winning all six local government areas of Edo North to make the vic­tory in the state 18/18.
The PDP candidate said that a date would be set aside to formally re­ceive all the APC leaders who were willing to join the PDP, noting that the battle to redeem the state was one that must be won against the agents of darkness which cur­rently holds the reins of power in the state.
