Emmanuel Uduaghan returns to PDP
Former Governor of Delta State, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan has returned to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after dumping the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Dr Uduaghan today officially made a return to his former party where he served as secretary to the government and governor for eight years.
The former governor was received back into the PDP fold today at his ward, Aigborodo Ward 6, in Warri North Local Government Council of Delta State.
Mr. Uduaghan said that for several months now, he has been persuaded to return to the PDP.
The former governor of Delta State defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in August of 2018.
At the time, he said in a statement titled ‘Moving On To The Bigger Playing Field’, that he decided to join the ruling party because of the Muhammadu Buhari administration’s effort in tackling the crisis in the south-south region.
In 2019, Uduaghan went on to contest for the Delta South senatorial district but lost to James Manager.
The former governor and the APC challenged the result up until the appellate court but lost to his PDP opponent, Senator James Manager.
Addressing the crowd, Uduaghan said he only “stepped out for a few days to see what was out there and I have come back to strengthen the party. Today, I have come to reactivate my membership card. I have picked it up.
“I am hearing that there are a few challenges, we have the manpower, the experience to be able to elevate our area and the people of Delta state, and that we shall do.”
