EDO 2020: ADP Stalwart, 105 Others Defect To PDP
An executive member of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), Oshodin Izedomwen and 105 members have been reportedly defected to Peoples Democratic Party in Edo State.
This is coming after the incumbent governor of the State, Godwin Obaseki defected to PDP from All Progressives Congress.
The ADP defectors are from Egor , Ovia South West, and Ovia North East Local Government Areas of Edo.
Oshodin Izedomwen, the ADP Organising Secretary in Edo while leading other 105 defectors said that the defection was part of their belief in the capacity of the PDP.
He said he was a founding member of the PDP and that he left the party because of some persons , whom he described as “strange bedfellows ” who came to join the PDP.
He explained that the other defectors and himself had now returned to the PDP because the “ strange bedfellows had since left the party and added that interest is all that matters in politics.
Edo governorship election is slated for September 19 and Obaseki , who is the PDP candidate , will face Osagie Ize- Iyamu of the APC.
