A former Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly, Monday Igbuya and a former member of the Federal House of Representatives, Chief Hon Edoja, have reportedly dumped the All Progressives Congress for the Peoples Democratic Party.
The Chairman of PDP Delta, Mr Kingsley Esiso, in a statement issued on Thursday by the party’s publicity secretary, Mr Latimore Oghenesivbe, disclosed that a PDP mega rally was being arranged to hold at Sapele Township Stadium on October 23, to formally welcome the political decampees and their teeming supporters.
The statement explained that the Delta State Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, was expected to formally receive the decampees into the PDP fold at the event.
According to the statement, the Delta Central Chairman of PDP, Chief F. Fovie and members of his central executives in conjunction with the office of the state party chairman have already concluded plans to make the political event a memorable one.
Esiso also noted that the mega rally is obviously one of the series of programmes lined up to showcase the political supremacy of PDP as the only party having a deep-rooted political relationship with the good people of Delta State, ahead of 2023 general elections.
