A former Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan has revealed why he has not dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The former Governor addressed rumours of his imminent defection from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress, APC, in an interview with reporters in Delta State on Wednesday.
He spoke in response to weeks of rumour around the state that Uduaghan would be defecting to the APC and use the party’s ticket to stand for the Delta South seat in the Senate.
Asked to respond to the issue, yesterday, the former Governor said there were high level interventions that have kept him back in the party.
Uduaghan said, “It is not true that I would be defecting either today (Wednesday) or tomorrow, but there have been a lot of interventions going on from the likes of Chief Ibori, the governor (Okowa) and some party leaders.
“In the last few days, they have been talking and I am listening to them. So, basically, some elders have intervened on the matter, and I am listening to them.”
