The All Progressives Congress (APC) has lost over 5,000 members to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ika North East Local Government Area of Delta State.
The decampees, led by APC chieftain Comrade Ebenezer Obiazorkwo and other seven APC ward chairmen in Ika North East, were on Friday, December 29, 2017, received by the State Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, during a PDP meeting held at Ute Okpu.
Speaking at the occasion, Comrade Obiazorkwo said the development marked the final death of their former party in the local government area, as the people “have decided to follow light, truth and the State Governor, who has shown leadership style that has brought peace, unity, and development across the state.”
Comrade Obiazorkwo and other ward leaders assured Okowa of their total loyalty and promised “never to return to Egypt” in their political journey
The Governor while receiving the decampees assured them that they have made the best decision and that PDP will ensure that everyone is given the same treatment so as to operate on the same playground.
He assured Deltans of more dividends of democracy in 2018 and beyond, even as he tasked the people for the sustenance of their support for his administration.
