Nosa Akenzua, Asaba.
Chief James Okeleke, All Progress Congress Party ( APC) chieftain in Delta state, about 7,000 others dumped party for People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Okeleke who spoke to Journalists in Ogwashi Uku play ground on Wednesday alongside others, said that he and his supporters dumped APC for alleged lost of direction and focus.
He said that it was clear APC was never ready for 2019 elections in Delta, rather embarked on false hopes of winning the elections.
“I am fully back to the PDP family, and my supporters moved into the party with me, we are no longer members of the APC family because the party lacks focus.
We are now in PDP to support the good works of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa and we mobilized massively for him, we are fulfilled now working for Deltans and Okowa for the upliftment of the state” Okeleke said
But the state chairman of the party, Barr Kingsley Esiso in his remarks, assured the decampees of equal opportunities with old members of the party and warned them against anti party activities.
Esiso said that the failure of APC at all levels, clearly had boosted the interest of its members to dump the party for PDP, assuring that PDP has the largest umbrella that will contain all the decampees.
He commended Governor Okowa for the completion of the Ogwashi Uku/ Ubulu unor road which was abandoned by the past administration and called on Deltans to lend their supports.
