A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from Omala Local Government Area of Kogi State, Hon. Sunday Ihiabe, has defected to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
A two-time Special Assistant to Alhaji Ibrahim Idris, the former Governor of Kogi State on Rural Developments, Hon. Ihiabe declared for PDP before his Akpacha Ward of Omala LGA executives of the party. He told the Ward executives and his teeming supporters that he is “back home to the PDP family under the charismatic and able leadership of Alhaji Ibrahim Idris.”
Ihiabe recalled “the pragmatic leadership of the former Governor, Ibrahim Idris,” saying that “aside his patriotic and unblemished approach to governance, it was characterised with human feelings.”
Responding, the Ward Chairman of Akpacha, Mallam Ibrahim Iyaji, welcomed Hon. Ihiabe, saying that the party missed his grassroots mobilisation efforts and his capacity to carry along large party supporters in all party affairs.
He assured him of all necessary cooperation and collaboration to ensure Omala return to PDP, as it used to be in the past.
Responding to the warm welcome, Hon. Ihiabe promised to reinvigorate the same spirit that made Omala the home of PDP in Kogi State.
He promised to be committed and work for the good and success of the party in the area, Kogi State at large.
The events took place at Ibado in Akpacha Ward of Omala LGA of Kogi State, and was witnessed by the ward executives and large PDP supporters.
