The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State has declared that it would not miss the former governor of the state, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, who just abandoned the party and returned to the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday.
In a statement released by Publicity Secretary, Mr. Sylvester Imonina in Asaba, while reacting to the defection of the former governor, the party said “The Delta APC will not miss him in any way because APC accommodated him out of compassion as an orphaned politician displaced by the same PDP he has returned to. We wish him well.
“In the past two weeks, there have been rumours of perfection of plans by the former governor to defect to the PDP. Today, the 28th of September, 2020, those behind the rumour have been justified by the formal defection by him to the PDP.”
The Delta chapter of the APC in the statement further added that “Well, for records purpose, Governor Uduaghan came into APC as a loner and he has returned to where he came from in the same way.
“In politics and in line with freedom of association as guaranteed by the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended, he has the right to choose whosoever to associate with for whatever reasons.
“However, he should not forget the fact that when the PDP was uninhabitable for him, he was housed by Delta APC, despite the fact that he did not come to APC with anybody.”
