In what can be termed a summary dismissal, the Delta chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) says it would not miss the former governor of the state, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan.
The former governor recently defected from APC to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The APC disclosed this in a statement issued by its publicity secretary, Sylvester Imonina, in Asaba, while reacting to Uduaghan’s defection.
Going further, the party said it only accommodated him out of compassion as an orphaned politician displaced by the same PDP he has returned to.
“Well, for records purpose, Gov. Uduaghan came into APC as a loner and he has returned to where he came from in the same way.
“However, he should not forget the fact that when the PDP was uninhabitable for him, he was housed by Delta APC, despite the fact that he did not come to APC with anybody."
Uduaghan, a medical doctor turned politician, was a member of the PDP until he decided to join the APC in August 2018. After his two years sojourn in the APC, he has now returned to the PDP.
Legit.ng gathered that the former governor led thousands of his supporters to the PDP at his unit, in Ward 6, Abigborodo, Warri north local government area of the state.
Legit.ng had also reported that Uduaghan denied claims by the minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godwill Akpabio, linking him to contracts from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
In a statement by his media aide, Monoyo Edon, Uduaghan described Akpabio's allegations as mere lies, insisting that he did not at any time get any contract from the NDDC.
The former Delta governor called on Nigerians to disregard the claims by the minister,
