Over 5,000 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have dumped the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ughelli North Local Government area of Delta State.
This was disclosed by Olorogun Ovoke Oshasha, who led the defectors.
He said: ”We are tired of PDP in Delta State; we are tired of being governed by people who cannot pay workers’ salaries, who cannot provide good health care, who cannot provide adequate security for lives and property and cannot complete meaningful projects that can change the economic activities of Ughelli North.
”Ughelli is a town that connects many other towns together, yet we cannot boast of durable roads. All projects that were started in Ughelli were abandoned by the current administration.
”If you go out there right now, you will see Deltans struggling to survive despite the huge allocations that come to Delta State.”
The Chairman of APC in Delta Central, Adelabu Bodjor, and the Chairman of the party in Ughelli North, Olorogun Felix Ekure, while speaking, welcomed the new members, saying APC was a party where every member had equal rights.
