Defection: Blow on Ikimi as 1000 Kinsmen joins APC

Defection: Blow on Ikimi as 1000 Kinsmen joins APC

Over 1000 members of
the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in
Igueben Local Government Area including
the former Local Government Transition
Committee Chairman, Hon. Tom Adodo
have thrown their support for the
administration of Comrade Adams
Oshiomhole as they formally dumped the
Peoples Democratic Party for the All
Progressive Congress, APC in the state.
Igueben is hometown of PDP chieftain,
Chief Tom Ikimi.
Addressing the Governor and chieftains of
the APC at Government House yesterday,
Elder Tom Adodo, former Transition
Committee Chairman 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 6years.
He said, “For so many years, PDP
administration brought decay to our
infrastructures, we have seen decay even in
our moral lives and for the 6 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.
He assured the governor of their total
support in to repeate the 2012 18/18
election success in all the local government
areas in the state.
Also, a former youth leader, PDP Ward 6,
Otoide Precious thanked the Governor for
his good works in the state.
He said, “I will like to thank you Mr.
Governor for the good work you have been
doing for Edo State, we have been missing
out. I am not here to criticize or to advertise
but am here to tell you the major truth but
I believe that in time to come, you will be
the President of this great country. When I
enter Benin City, I was amazed at the way
things have turned around. What PDP could
not do in 16 years, just one man, one
government has come to turn things
around.
“Is this not enough for us to leave PDP and
join APC? Is this not enough reason for us
to know that APC is the light of the country?
We believe that the APC Presidential
candidate will be better than the present
President. That is why we mobilize ourselves
to tell the world that there is need to dump
PDP and join forces with the APC.
On his part, Mr. Aligbe said, “It is in this
administration of Comrade Oshiomhole
that Igueben people have been enjoying
good roads, infrastructural development
and every school now wear red roofs. From
Igueben to Udo which used to be 1hr
driving now is now 20minutes and several
okther on-going projects.
PDP leaders have been pressurizing us to
stay in the party that good things will soon
start happening. I have waited for long yet
no change so today, I and my followers
from Ward 3 have decided to tear the
umbrella and join APC
