 BARELY one month after over 500 leaders and All Progressives Congress (APC) faithful defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ndokwa East Local Government Area, Delta State, oppo­sition political parties in the area have yet suffered another heavy casualties, as no fewer than 1,000 members also defected to PDP in Ashaka and Ushie communities during the party’s community-to-community campaigns.

The defectors were drawn from APC, All Progressives Grand Al­liance (APGA) and the Labour Party (LP) took the advantage of the final bit of the PDP campaign in the area to perfect their decisions.

The leader of the de­campees, Mr. Francis Ogbum, who spoke on be­half of others, explained that their decision was based on the observation that the PDP administra­tion in Delta State had convincingly performed beyond all expectations.

He noted that as for­mer members of opposi­tion parties in the area, they were fed up with the hardship, hunger and insecurity currently ravaging the country. “We have observed that PDP is the light of the Nigerian nation and the party is now on a missionto rescue the country, so let us join hands to rescue Nigeria”, he emphasized.

While thanking PDP lead­ers in the loal government area for welcoming them, Mr. Ogbum pleaded for their equal recognition and treatment, promising to fetch more members of opposition parties into PDP in order to actualize a landslide victory of the PDP candidates.

While receiving the de­campees, the Chairman of PDP in Ndokwa East, Chief Vincent Osilonya, congratu­lated them on the wise deci­sion, assuring them of equal recognition and treatment with the old members. Chief Osilonya requested the decampees to show com­mitment and dedication towards working for the success of PDP in all the forthcoming elections.

In other statements, the PDP LGA Chairman con­demned the antecedent of some former PDP mem­bers, who defected to op­position parties to fight and blaspheme the PDP leaders for selfish reasons.

On his part, a chieftain of PDP and current DESO­PADEC Commissioner representing the area, Mr. Azaka Ossai, also expressed satisfaction with the large crowds of supporters that turned out for the cam­paigns. He particularly commended the decam­pees for recognizing the supremacy of PDP over opposition parties and as­sured them of adequate dividends of democracy after the victories of the party’s candidates.

The DESOPADEC com­missioner further as­serted that Ndokwa East and Delta State remained dominantly PDP, pointing out that all candidates of the opposition par­ties were members and beneficiaries of PDP ad­ministration in the past. He reminded the party supporters of the task ahead and charged them to ensure the success of the PDP candidates at the polls.

Meanwhile, an ex-Chair­man of PDP in the area, Chief Joe Ugboma, earlier during the campaigns, described the party as indomitable and advised all supporters to be cou­rageous in the effort to achieve the objective of 100 percent victory for all their candidates, lauding the massive turn out and daily defection to PDP by members of opposition parties.
