A former Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, has officially returned to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Uduaghan had left the PDP for the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the build-up to the 2015 general elections, and contested for the Delta South Senatorial District seat, but lost to the incumbent Senator James Manager of the PDP.
Unconfirmed reports, last week, had it that Uduaghan was at the verge of returning to the PDP, after a closed-door meeting with Chief James Ibori, a former Governor of the State.
Ibori was said to have met Uduaghan, along with Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, at the Government House, Asaba, the State capital, as well as in Oghara, the country home of Ibori.
Scores of Uduaghan’s supporters, who are currently at Abigboro, the Itsekiri home of the former Governor, are on ground for his official defection to the PDP.
The ceremony is holding today, at Unit 1, Ward 6, Abigborodo, Warri North Local Government Area of the State.
