Crisis in PDP, APC our gain— Delta PDM chair
By Austin Ogwuda
Asaba— THERE is growing tension among the members of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan’s cabinet, following the directive by the governor to those wishing to contest elections in 2015 to resign and avoid distraction and divided loyalty.
However, since he gave the directive about a month ago, none of the cabinet members have tendered their resignation despite the fact that some of them are warming up for 2015, either to contest governor-ship or Assembly seats.
State Commissioner for Information, Mr. Chike Ogeah, who spoke on the development, said: “Whoever is ready to leave is welcome to do so. But so far no one seems to have taken that final step to leave.
“When any letter of resignation is tendered and received by the governor from any cabinet member, the media will be immediately notified. This is my solemn promise to you.”
Meanwhile, the state Chairman of Peoples Democratic Movement, PDM, Chief Frank Igwebuike, has said that “Delta PDM governorship candidate will emerge through consensus arrangement to avoid rancour.
“Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, with over 25 guber aspirants in Delta must end in crisis and when two elephants fight, it is the hunter that grains.
“In this instance, PDM will gain putting into consideration that in PDP, a particular zone feels that it is its turn to produce the governor for 2015.
“What happens if that zone does not get the PDP ticket? All Progressive Congress, APC, is currently factionalised, while PDM is united. Your guess is as good as mine.”
