BENIN—National President, Goodluck-for-Transformation and state Women Coordinator, Goodluck Campaign Organisation, Chief Evelyn Igbafe, a former member of the House of Representatives and senatorial aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Edo South, Ehiogie West-Idahosa, have dumped the PDP for the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State.
Mr. Roland Ehigiamusoe, a former Commissioner in the old Bendel State and a founding member of the PDP, alongside over 5,000 of their supporters also joined the APC.
Speaking when they were received by Governor Adams Oshiomhole, Chief Igbafe said that she was merely on sabbatical before, but was now fully back to the party where her heart truly belongs.
She assured Oshiomhole and other APC chieftains who received her, that many people were disenchanted with the PDP and that “many are on their way to the APC.”
Ehigiamusoe, on his part, said PDP was a sinking ship which is under the grip of a single man.
He said: “I have been a member of the PDP right from inception when it was formed on August 30, 1998. I have been there since and I have witnessed a lot of things. I am not surprised today that the PDP is sinking.”
