PDP Supporters Defect to APC in Edo

Hundreds of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) supporters in Edo State have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Speaking at the ceremony yesterday in Okada, the leader of the defectors,. Balogun Okhiwere, said their decision was based on the quality representation of Dennis Idahosa at the House of Representatives.

He said that the defectors were joining forces with the APC to strengthen it and assist the lawmaker, who represents Ovia Federal Constituency to continue with his developmental strides.

“We, the undersigned and members of the PDP in Ovia North East hereby resign our membership of the PDP.

“We thereafter resolved to decamp to the APC in appreciation of the developmental stride of Idahosa, who has brought infrastructural development to all nooks and crannies of the constituency,” he said.

Idahosa, who received them, hailed them for their courage, saying they would be treated equally with those they met on ground.

He noted that their defection would help strengthen his resolve to continue to improve the lives of his constituents.

“You are already part of us even before your coming. Let me reiterate here that there is no new and old APC with your coming. We are all one and working for the same purpose.

“I appeal to us all to work with unity of purpose so that we can all meet our expectations of making Ovia a better place,” Idahosa said.
