ASABA – Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Delta State, has dismissed the purported defection of some Deltans to the All Progressive Congress, APC, describing it as inconsequential and of no effect to the fortunes of the PDP in the state.

The gubernatorial candidate of Labour Party, LP, Chief Great Ogboru and Delta North Senatorial candidate of Accord Party, AP, Hon Victor Ochei and others from PDP recently defected to APC in the state.

The declaration was made by the State Publicity Secretary, PDP, Mr. Ifeanyi Osuoza stated on the implications of the purported defection that they have not only found them in the political wilderness but have ended up committing political suicide.

Mr. Osuoza, who noted that politicians were at liberty to seek political platforms to actualize their political ambitions, however added that many politicians who have defected to other platforms outside the PDP would be disastrous if they do not look properly before they leap.

The Delta PDP Spokesman stated that these so called high profile defectors have been roundly defeated in past elections in the state, and while dismissing them as political spent forces who lacked the capacity to win election, even in their own wards, let alone local government and state levels, stressed that the PDP still has the political wherewithal to defeat them again and again in future election.

He noted that the PDP was solid in Delta State and was well poised to continue to win elections in all nooks and crannies in the state, insisting that the acceptability of the PDP has been further enhanced by the excellent performance of the Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, whom he described as a miracle working governor, in the past one year.

Osuoza, charged the PDP family to remain resolute and focused in promoting the laudable ideals of the party, especially at the grassroots and while advising them to explore new vistas of making the party more attractive to encourage new membership, assured that every newly registered member would be accorded with deserved importance and recognition, as they were all equal stakeholders in the scheme of party operations.
