Louis Imhandegbelo, former Special Assistant to Edo State Governor on Political Matters in Ohordua Ward, Esan South East Local Government Area of the state, has decamped with his over two hundred card-carrying members from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The Benin-based politician and businessman, in his speech, described APC government as a bad dream, adding that the people of Ohordua have been left in the dark in terms of development.
According to him, “As you can see, I’m an antidote to bad governance; I decided to dump APC for PDP in my ward because I see good prospect in PDP.
“I have come to join the Peoples Democratic Party to help rescue our fatherland from APC’s bad leadership and from forces of retrogression.
“Before I decided to join PDP, I have consulted with the good people of Ohordua in Esan South East on the way forward for our land and the response I got was very impressive.
“My followers and I that have decamped today to PDP have one common agenda, which is to join forces with other compatriots to save Esan land and the country in general from the clear and imminent danger staring it in the face before it becomes too late.
“When you talk of politics in this Ward 4, my track records are there for you to see, I have always delivered this ward to my former party APC, and I promise PDP that our decamping today marked the end of APC in this ward and at the same time in the local government.
“My people decide to follow me because of my contributions to the development of my community. As far as we are concerned in Esan South East, APC is gone and gone forever.
“You can also see the caliber of people that have come to usher me into the PDP family, which is to tell you that we are in for a serious business.
“We will all canvass supports for our president-to-be, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, because he has all it takes to prudently manage the affairs of this country.”
“So I ‘m using this medium to call on all who believes in united and Progressive Nigeria to vote massively for the PDP presidential candidate come 2019 general elections.”
