UGHELLI-Former Delta State House of Assembly candidate for Ughelli North constituency I, under the African Democratic Congress, ADC, party, Hon Ibebe Akpobome Rufus has joined the All Progressive Congress, APC, in Ughelli North local government area of Delta State.
Ibebe who recently resigned his membership and chairmanship position of the ADC, and revalidated his APC membership at Ekiugbo-Ughelli community Town Hall, disclosed that the African Democratic Congress, ADC, has lost its prerequisite ingredients as a political party in the state.
According to him, the decision to join the party was taken after a careful and wide consultation because the African Congress is no longer a viable tool for us to achieve the yearning of our people giving them dividends of democracy.
“As you all know, the main reason of joining a political party is to carry along your followers and bring home the dividends of democracy, but in a situation where the vehicle which is the ADC can no longer guarantee that, one has no option than to go to a bigger platform.
“The APC, been a progressive party, I choose to join and I look forward to working with other party members towards the upliftment, growth and development of the party.
“I will not use fowl language because I do not believe in the politics of bitterness and i choose the APC ahead of the other political parties because I feel it would be able to accommodate me and my teeming supporters.
“Come 2023, the APC will take over Delta state with what I am seeing on ground, the reconciliation among leaders of the party, the sky will be the limit for the party.
“The force of DSP Ovie Omo-Agege and Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, Chief Great Ogboru and the likes of Victor Ochei show that unity is coming and a former chairman a political party, I add my little experience because APC has a bright future in Delta state”.
