The Immediate past Governor of Delta State, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has decamped to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Uduaghan, who met behind closed doors with bigwigs of the APC including President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, made the announcement on Wednesday in a statement entitled ‘Moving On To The Bigger Playing Field’.
He said, “For over 12 years, I was deeply involved in the management of the issues of the region, first as Secretary to State Government (SSG), and then as governor of Delta State for eight years.”
“Strategically, we had engagement as our major tool. This involved government officials, with me in the forefront (sometimes personally going into the creeks without security at nocturnal hours), community leaders, traditional rulers, religious leaders, our youths, retired military officers, activists, etc,” the former governor added.
