Former Deputy Minority Whip of the House of Representatives and one-time Governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State, Hon Emma Arigbe-Osula, on Wednesday led thousands of his supporters to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Also, a factional President of the Edo State Drivers Welfare Association, Comrade Adams Ehigiamusoe (Shaba) led his supporters to dump the PDP for the APC.

Speaking at the decamping ceremony, Hon. Arigbe-Osula said his decision to join the APC was just a mere formality owing to Governor Adams Oshiomhole’s superior position in the upliftment of Edo state more than any one has done in recent history.

He noted that Oshiomhole’s brilliant performances had earned him the total support of all Edo people.

Addressing the governor, Arigbe-Osula said:“We can say today that you have done a true transformation in the real sense of it, not just transformation in words. Edo State was left totally shattered after 8 years of PDP maladministration, in fact, you are a miracle worker.

“In 2012, I came out to say that Edo State must re-elect you and we did. Now I am coming out to say having elected the President in which you have a hand, indeed it was your project and I want to say thank you for bringing development to our state. I know you are a great fighter, victorious in many fights but I never knew you have the ability to raise the dead because Edo State was almost totally dead before you took over the state.”
