Hundreds of party faithful formerly loyal to the All Progressives Congress, APC, have decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Onicha Olona, Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State, describing the APC as a party that has taken Deltans and Nigerians to the wilderness.
Leading other decampees, the member representing Onicha Olona Ward 4 in Aniocha North Constituency, Roland Ekwemalor, said they have experienced the two parties, saying that PDP is the only party that has Nigerians at heart and can bring progress to the state.
“Nobody forced us to decamp from APC, we were touched by the transformation taking place in ward 4 by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa. He is really doing a great job here. He has transformed Boys Secondary School and Paid Council Workers. It takes a focused government to achieve all this.”
He added, “The All Progressives Congress, APC, has nothing to offer Deltans. The APC-led administration in the country is an administration of intimidation, suffering and killings.
“APC has brought kidnapping, cattle rustling and disunity among Nigerians and all these challenges have led abject poverty in the country and insecurity.
“APC does not mean well for the youth of Delta state, leaving them in abject poverty thereby leading to all social vices that have become the order of the day.
“On behalf of the decampees of Onicha Olona, Aniocha North Local Government, l am assuring the people that PDP owns Aniocha North Local Government.
In PDP we shall together fight to ensure we liberate Deltans and Nigerians from the leadership of APC and restore the country back to its lost glory.”
Speaking during the ceremony, member representing Aniocha North in Delta State House of Assembly, Hon. Engr. Emmanuel Nwaobi welcomed the decampees, indicating that they will burn the brooms given to them by APC and give them a fresh umbrella to cover them from sun and Rain.
He called on all eligible voters in Delta State to ensure they come out to vote for PDP to set the citizens free from the present challenges they have found themselves in the last three years.
He enjoined the Decampees to ensure they vote APC out of government to give way for PDP to restore the country back in all spheres of life for its peace, unity and development.
The chairman on the occasion Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Hon. Chinye Bazim appreciated the decampees for taking a bold step in joining PDP. He enjoined Deltans to ensure they vote APC out of government as that is the only way to restore the dignity among community.
