#EdoDecides: APC, UPP members dump party for PDP

15 September 2016, 11:26

Benin City - Less than two weeks to the Edo State governorship election, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been dealt a huge blow.

Hundred of members of the party and the United Progressives Party (UPP) have defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), reports Daily Post.

The APC members were led by a former chairman of the Butchers Association of Nigeria (BAN), Sunny Omokaro, while a former Women Leader of the UPP in the state, Patience Ehigiator, led the party’s defectors.

Omokaro said he returned to the PDP based on the fact that Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the party's candidate in the election has a practical blueprint that would elevate the state.

Omokaro promised to get the butchers in the state to support the PDP and its candidate.

The defectors were received by Emma Ogbomo, the deputy chairman of the PDP in the state.
