20,000 Labour Party Members dump party for PDP in Delta
No fewer than 20,000 Labour Party (LP) members in Ughelli and its environs in Delta State have dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).A chieftain of the party, Chief Felix Ogbodu who led others to decamp, told Journalists that their decision to dump the Labour Party (LP) to embrace the good work of the state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was informed by the over whelming infrastructural development in the state in the last two years adding “it is a really difficult decision considering the fact that my numerous followers might not heed, but for the work of Governor Okowa.”Noting that PDP is the only party in Delta State, Chief Ogbodu called on those who see Okowa as non performance to retrace their steps and join the winning party, PDP. Welcoming the decampees, the Political Adviser to the Governor, Mr. Omimi Esquire thanked the State Chairman of the Newforce movement for Okowa, Mr. Kinsley Odiaka Iweka, and urged the decampees to continue to show loyalty to their party PDP.Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party group known as ‘PDP Mandate’ has chided opposition parties for allegedly criticizing Governor Ifeanyi Okowa. The group’s National President, Chief Isaac Anwuzia who spoke to Journalists in Asaba said the group had been on “ground” since 2013 with the sole aim of making Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa the governor of the state.Warning opposition party members to shut up their mouths, Chief Anwuzia said Okowa’s records speak volumes in the last two years of his administration.His words, “with 2019 around the corner, we have seen Okowa working and nobody will criticize a good worker” saying that there was nothing wrong with the statement recently credited to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt General Tukur Buratai for warning military personnel to desist from meddling in politics.It would be recalled that in the last three weeks, opposition, parties in the state have described Okowa led administration as a “disaster”, saying his election as Governor of the state had brought pains and hunger to Deltans.
