About 500 women from the All Progressive Congress (APC) and Social Democratic Party (SDP)  in Udaba community, Etsako Central Local Government Area of Edo State have defected to the Peoples Democratic Party.

The women said they were joining the party that would take Edo to a higher level.

State Chairman of the PDP, Chief Dan Orbih, who receive the defectors said a PDP government in Edo would prioritize women empowerment and welfare.
Chief Orbih encouraged them to become apostles of change in the state by mobilizing support for the PDP.

Orbih said the PDP would neutralize Governor Oshiomhole’s plan to replace himself with another stranger as the governor.

He said Oshiomhole was a stranger in the state who would be leaving hardship and huge debt burden on the state.
Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu said the Afemai people would not lose anything after Oshiomhole hands over in November.

A former commissioner for Lands and Survey under Oshiomhole, Donald Boi Osikena, disclosed that he resigned because his responsibilities as commissioner were usurped by the governor.

Osikena, who defected to the PDP last year, said, “My ministry was being run from the government house. Approvals for lands and certificate of occupancy were being issued from government house without informing me. I reasoned that I didn’t want to go to jail early in life, so I left.”
