Ex-Gov. Uduaghan Speaks On Plan To Dump PDP For APC

Influential politician and former governor Emmanuel Udaughan, has finally opened up on his alleged plan to defect from PDP to the ruling APC.

While speaking during an exclusive telephone interview Vanguard on Thursday evening, former Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Udaughan, confirmed that he will dump the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The influential politician said there was pressure on him to come to APC, but it was not an affair of the National Chairman of APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

He said: “The situation is more from the situation on ground in PDP and my political future. I am also looking at my political future and those of my followers. I have studied the political terrain and I believe the Delta should not be in opposition.”

When asked if Comrade Oshiomhole had discussed his movement to APC with him, Uduaghan said: "Yes, I am talking with Oshiomhole, we are discussing like old colleagues, it is not a pressure, he would wish that I come over, but I also told him that I have a leader, Chief James Onanefe Ibori and they should have a discussion with him.”

An APC chieftain who also spoke to Vanguard corroborated Uduaghan’s claim, saying: “Uduaghan and Oshiomhole are ex-governors and friends, so when the matter came up regarding Uduaghan joining APC, he made it clear that he has a political leader, who is Chief James Ibori.

“He told Oshiomhole and those, who spoke to him to discuss with Ibori because as far as he is concerned, there is no competition between him (Oshiomhole) and Ibori over who is his political leader. Ibori is his leader and I do not think that Oshiomhole will contest that.

“There are a lot of issues and undercurrents regarding Uduaghan and his movement to APC, which will not be dragged to the media just now. We have to watch.”
