Edo State Commissioner for Investment and Public/Private Partnership, Dennis Idahosa, Friday, defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Idahosa, who joined the PDP along with some leaders of the APC in Ovia South West Local Government Area of the State, was received into the PDP by the state Chairman, Mr Dan Orbih. He said his defection was a prelude to his resignation as commissioner, which would follow soon.
According to him, he left the APC because of incessant abuse of President Goodluck Jonathan and Edo elders by Gov. Adams Oshiomhole.
“The reason I am joining PDP is that I don’t agree with the way Oshiomhole abuses our elders and President Jonathan. I stand to support President Jonathan for the presidency,” he said.
Idahosa hinted that more commissioners in Oshiomhole’s cabinet have expressed willingness to join the PDP.
He noted that the PDP would harness the failures of Oshiomhole’s administration to the benefit of the party.
