Receiving the defectors on behalf of the state chairman of APC, Jones Erue, deputy chairman, Engr. Elvis Ayomanor boasted that the party would take over Government House, Asaba, saying that the party remained the only platform to liberate the people of Delta state from the PDP-led government.

Ayomanor said with the calibre of persons in the party, APC would stop at nothing at ensuring that it becomes the ruling party in the state soon.

 He said the party’s doors were open to receive more converts who had realised that the opposition PDP has no future in the state.

 Earlier, the leader of the defectors, Abraham Bobo, said they decided to join the APC to support the developmental efforts of President Muhamadu Buhari and rescue the state from the grip of PDP.

He also commended the leadership qualities of the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, vowing to work with him to ensure that Delta becomes an APC state soon.
