EDO State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has congratulated senators and members of the House of Representatives who yesterday defected to the party, saying that their defection marks the beginning of the end of tyranny and slide to dictatorship of the All Progressives Congress, APC Federal Government.
The party, in a statement in Benin City, by the state chairman, Chief Dan Orbih, said: “On behalf of the joyous members of PDP Edo State, we salute your courage in the face of intimidation, harassment and brute display of power arrogance and misuse of security agencies to cow and silence the opposition.
“The poor treatment shown to Chief John Odigie-Oyegun has started manifesting in Adams Oshiomhole’s political mentality.
“Surely, his emergence as factional national chairman of APC has heralded the reversal of the fortunes of APC and by providence that of Nigeria.
“With regrets, we recall how the Edo State House of Assembly was locked and relocated to his Government House sitting room during his inglorious years as governor of Edo State. Be informed that APC is an enemy of democracy.”
