The immediate past governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, has officially dumped the Peoples Democratic Party for the ruling All Progressives Congress, saying that he ditched his former party owing to President Muhammadu Buhari’s “passionate” interest for the development of the Niger Delta region.
He also disclosed that many other leaders of PDP in Delta State are also ready to join him in APC to ensure that his new party take over the state and deliver President Buhari’s second term bid particularly in the Niger Delta region.
Uduaghan in a statement made available to our correspondent on Wednesday morning and titled ‘Moving On To The Bigger Playing Field’, the former governor noted that despite Buhari inability to score the required 25 per cent in the 2015 election in the region, he has given direct focus to the development of the region.
The former governor stated that having played key role in the cessation of hostilities in the once restive region particularly risking his life for the returned of peace while serving as governor, he would support any government doing it best to solve the myriad of problems confronting the region.
