The ranks of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State swelled yesterday when some Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, members in the state including a former majority leader in the State House of Assembly, Mr Frank Okiye, led 20 leaders of the party and hundreds of their supporters to the APC.
Addressing the leaders of the APC, including the governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole in Benin, Okiye said he was delighted to reunite with his “ideological friends”.
He said, “We have walked into the centre from various directions and I have found out that in life, the only thing that is permanent is change and I have found that the wind of change has taken off. This wind of change has been epitomized and demonstrated in the aggressive approach to liberate our people”.
He added, “It is my pleasure to come out straight to identify with those things that have come from the administration of the Comrade Governor of Edo State. There is no gainsaying that change has taken place in Edo State whether anybody likes it or not”.
