EDO GUBER: Ex-Senator and others defect to APC

Today in Benin City, there was an Exodus of stalwarts of The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressive Congress (APC)

Notable members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) defected to the All Progressive Congress (APC) amongst the defectors are, two-time Senator representing Edo South, Matthew Uhroghide, and Patrick Giwa, a former House of Representatives aspirant from Owan Federal Constituency.

The defection of Senator Uhroghide and Patrick Giwa signifies a strategic realignment of political forces within the state. Both individuals bring substantial political experience and influence to the APC, bolstering the party’s strength and enhancing its electoral prospects. While the specific reasons behind this mass defection remain undisclosed, it highlights the ongoing dynamics within Edo State’s political landscape as parties gear up for the upcoming governorship election.

The defection could be a result of shifting political calculations, personal ambitions, or strategic considerations in anticipation of the electoral contest. The APC stands to gain significantly from these high-profile defections, acquiring seasoned politicians who can mobilize support and actively contribute to the party’s campaign efforts.

As the election date approaches, political activities are expected to intensify. Both the APC and PDP will vie for support and work to consolidate their respective bases.
