LP Suffers Set Back In Oshimili South As Party’s Former State Assembly Candidate Returns To PDP


A former 2023 State House of Assembly candidate of the Labour Party (LP), in Oshimili South Local Government Area of Delta State, Mr Clement Odukwe, has dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Mr Odukwe, from ward 2, who jumped ship ahead of the general election, was introduced by the LGA Party Chairman, Ogbueshi Dada Okonji, at the monthly meeting of PDP Ward 5 held on Sunday.

Ogbueshi Okonji attributed the inability of some PDP members to remain and work for the party to impatience, which he noted had robbed such members of great opportunities in the system.

He maintained that PDP was the only visible political party in Oshimili South and expressed optimism that all who left the party would definitely have cause to return and be part of the large political family.

The LGA PDP Chairman charged party faithful, especially the ward leaderships, to intensify efforts at wooing aggrieved members and those who stepped aside for flimsy excuses, insisting that the PDP umbrella was large enough to accommodate as many as were willing to belong.

Ogbueshi Okonji thanked the former Labour Party candidate for his decision to return to where he originally belonged,  and assured him and other returnees that the internal democracy in the party would ensure their well-being. 

In his remarks, Mr Clement Odukwe thanked the party for accepting him back and pledged his loyalty and support.
