There is fever in Delta PDP, says Emerhor
Leader of Delta State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Olorogun O’tega Emerhor has declared that “there is fever in the camp of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),” following the defection of over 5000 people from the party in Patani Local Government Area.
Emerhor made this statement during a defection rally in the local council while receiving former PDP Chairman of council, Vincent Oborikpo, Israel Unutame, Lewis Ekiyor and about 5000 PDP supporters into APC.
He thanked Unutame for leading the strong people to join APC, saying; “Today we are receiving strong men from PDP therefore PDP is going down and our ground is been boosted. There is fever in the camp of Delta PDP right now because when Delta PDP heard of this defection, they began to beg them with appointments as Special Assistants and contracts without payment that will bring trouble.
“PDP is gone and I am excited about this mammoth crowd; and I tell you that Patani is moving in the right direction. Some people are yet to join us and I know their fears; but do not be afraid for APC is taking over Delta in 2019. Therefore, anybody still outside should come and join us now because nobody is left in PDP. President Buhari is not going to allow any more rigging in elections because it is now going to be one man, one vote, like the just concluded Anambra governorship election.”
Also Speaking, Dr Cairo Ojougboh said Deltans must stop a government that has no budget which is a blue print fraud and Deltans have the weapons to stop it with their voters’ cards, urging “all APC supporters to go back to their various units and wards to sensitize the people including those who are up to 18 years on the urgent need to register and cast your votes in 2019.”
Speaking on behalf of the defectors, the duo of Unutame and Oborikpo in their separate statements said; “We are the people doing the dirty jobs and magic in PDP during general elections but today we turn our back on PDP and that magic will not be done in APC come 2019.
“That is why we have led over 5000 PDP women, men and youths to join APC to work with our whole hearts to bring results. The population of Patani Local Government Area is 70, 000 and our voting strength is 40, 000; we therefore ask for your moral support whenever we come to you as leaders.”
Among those who decamped were Otuoge James, Hon (Dr) Okpebetere, Abel Takore, Commander Samuel, Sir Prince Lawrence Babidor, Jonathan Owekeyi Bright and many others.
