Over 1000 members of the Peoples Democratic Party in Igueben Local Government Area of Edo State, including a former Local Government Transition Committee Chairman, Tom Adodo, on Thursday defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
They also declared support for the APC administration of Adams Oshiomhole. Igueben is hometown of PDP chieftain, Tom Ikimi, a former foreign affairs minister, who until last year was a senior member of the APC.
Addressing Mr. Oshiomhole and other members of the APC at the Government House, Mr. Adodo said, “Today, many of us that are here are from Ward 1 to 10 in Igueben Local Government. We are here to pledge and affirm our support to the Comrade-Governor because it is only a foolish man that will not see the developmental strides of the governor in Edo State in the past six years.
“For so many years, PDP administration brought decay to our infrastructures, we have seen decay even in our moral lives and for the six years and three months of the Comrade Governor, we have seen transformation in Edo State and so we are here to pledge our loyalty to the government that have done so much for the people of Edo State.”
