Former governor of Delta state, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has finally lifted the lids on why he dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking after formally receiving his PDP membership card at his unit in Ward 6 of Abigborodo in Warri North local government area, Uduaghan said he left the ruling party in order to bring fresh political touch to the opposition side.
Legit.ng previously reported that Uduaghan made a sensational return to PDP barely two years after he joined the ruling party after falling out with his successor Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
Sources from the Delta state government disclosed that the former governor's resolve to come back to the PDP is the outcome of many months of consultations with his predecessor Chief James Onanefe Ibori, his successor and a lot of bigwigs in the party.
Uduaghan, who addressed the jubilant crowd of supporters after collecting his PDP membership card, said he was overwhelmed by the outpouring of love.
The former governor promised to strengthen PDP with his return and settle the differences which forced him out of the party in 2018.
“I only stepped out for a few days to find out what is happening there and I have come back to strengthen the party. Today, I have come to reactivate my membership card. I have picked it up.
“I am hearing that there are a few challenges. We have the manpower, the experience to be able to elevate our area and the people of Delta State, and that we shall do."
In related news, Terkimbi Ikyange, former Benue state House of Assembly speaker, returned to the ruling party.
Comrade Abba Yaro, APC chairman in the state, made this disclosure and further added that the party would welcome both new and former members in time soon.
Yaro, who described the former speaker as a valuable asset, assured that Ikyange would strengthen the popularity and acceptability of the APC in Benue state.
