Former Delta State Governor, Uduaghan Returns to PDP

A former governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, is set to officially return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today, September 28th, 2020.

Uduaghan, who joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) to contest the Delta South senatorial seat in 2019, will dump the party on Monday afternoon.

He is expected to lead thousands of his supporters to the PDP at his Unit, in Ward 6, Abigborodo, Warri North local government area of the state.

Already, some of his supporters were alleged to have stormed Abigborodo ahead of the defection.

There have been reports that the ex-governor had finalised plans to return to the PDP on which platform he was elected and served as Governor for eight years.

He was said to have had a cold-war with his successor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa.

Uduaghan was recently sighted at the Annual General meeting of the Nigeria Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) at the Delta State University Teaching Hospital, Oghara with Governor Okowa and his predecessor, Chief James Ibori in attendance.

Already, some of the issues that forced the former governor to dump the PDP, where he was a founding member, have been resolved.

Though, Uduaghan had neither confirmed nor denied his return to the party, some of his loyalists, including Hon. Godwin Abigor, a former Delta Assembly lawmaker, last week defected to PDP.

Multiple sources within the PDP and APC have also confirmed the development.
