The All Progressives Congress (APC) dragnet in the South South has caught another big fish, as the immediate past governor of Delta State, Dr Emmanuel Udaughan has confirmed his imminent exit from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling party.
According to the former governor, the pressure to dump PDP is more because of the situation of the party in Delta State than pressure from the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole.
Udaughan made the confirmation in a telephone interview with Vanguard on Thursday.
He reportedly 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,” he said.
On whether he has been in talks with Oshiomhole, 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.”
