Asaba—SCORES of members of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Delta State have decamped to Peoples Democratic Movement, PDM, over alleged dissatisfaction with the recently concluded congresses in the state.
At present, APC is having two state secretariats in Asaba due to factionalization.
The decampees were led by former APC chieftains, Mr. Marcel Odeidi, from Delta South and Madam Helen Onokiti from Delta Central, to the PDM state secretariat in Asaba, where the state chairman, Chief Frank Igwebuike, received and presented them with new membership cards.
Speaking to Vanguard at PDM state secretariat in Asaba, a former APC chieftain, Mr. Odeidi, said: “We were formerly members of APC and, as a matter of fact, we were a power block in APC.
“But having regard to just concluded congresses which were undemocratic and people that were unpopular in the party were imposed on the party, we saw that it is not a platform that can deliver in 2015 and we have to seek for an alternative platform and we have come to PDM, a party that is built on democratic values. We are about one hundred thousand decamping.”
