Recent defection of several chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Delta State to the All Progressives Congress, APC, has triggered ripples in the PDP camp.
Reacting on the defection in Asaba, yesterday, the Chairman of the state chapter of the PDP, Chief Edwin Uzor, rained abuses on the defecting party members.
Uzor, however, described their departure as good riddance and something that would make the PDP stronger in the state.
He also called on the APC to be wary of the defectors as they had been, according to him, of no significant political relevance to the PDP.
According to him, “the decampees have only succeeded in exposing themselves as political jobbers, prostitutes and fair weather politicians who believe that they must be in government at all cost.
“These same persons who did not contribute anything to the victory of APC at the centre have suddenly realised that Delta State must not be in the opposition even when the APC did not win one local government in the state in the last general election,” he pointed out.
Uzor claimed that his party was ‘not shaken’ by the decision of the decamping members because they had never “contributed anything to the success of the PDP in any election.”
“The exit of Chief Akpeki, Barrister Ukubeyinje, Mr. Ijomah and others from the PDP shows that God has answered our prayer because Delta is a praying state and we, of the PDP, have also been praying that those who would make the government of His Excellency, Senator Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, not to achieve its goal of posterity to all Deltans should leave the party for good,” he stressed.
