APC National Chairman, Chief Odigie Oyegun, Commends Emerhor, Erue At A Joint Press Conference In Abuja
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC ), Chief Odigie Oyegun together with Delta APC leader, Olorogun Otega Emerhor, new high profile joiners Chief Great Ogboru and Rt Hon Victor Ochei, addressed a joint press conference at the National secretariat of APC in Abuja on Tuesday June 28th after a meeting where the Delta state APC leader Olorogun Emerhor presented Chief Great Ogboru, Hon Victor Ochei, other heavyweights of Light of Labour, PDP, Accord and SDP to the National Chairman and National Working Committee ( NWC) of the party.
The National Chairman, Chief Oyegun while congratulating Delta APC on the feat of bringing together such array of political heavyweights, specifically acknowledged Olorogun Otega Emerhor as the recognised state leader of the party in Delta State.
He commended him and the state Chairman Prophet Jones Erue for their sacrifices and broad mindedness in putting the interest of growing the party ahead of self interest.
Oyegun further urged all those in Delta not yet working with Emerhor and the Prophet Jones Exco to sheath their sword and join the main stream of the party in the state.
Olorogun Emerhor on his part declared the day his happiest in APC. That with the entrance of Chief Ogboru and Hon Ochei, an effective quit notice has now been served on Pdp to vacate government house Asaba in 2019.
He was elated that for a long while, only discouraging news has emanated from APC Delta, but that at last, we now have not only good but great news! He eulogies Chief Ogboru and Hon Ochei as progressive political juggernauts that has come to join hands with the existing structures of APC and will jointly sink Pdp in Delta State.
Chief Great Ogboru while also thanking Emerhor for his dexterity in midwifing the occasion, also corroborated Emerhor's position, saying the new APC is a team that has worked together and won victory in Delta state before and shall repeat the feats again in 2019.
He said with the caliber of persons that have now converged in APC, and the collapse of the former labour party structures into APC, the Pdp will soon be routed from Delta state.
On his part, Rt Hon Victor Ochei agreed that the end of Pdp has come. That he and other coming from the PDP background knows what it takes to win elections and shall transfer such skills to deliver APC in Delta.
He thank Emerhor, the State Chairman, Prophet Jones Erue, the National Chairman and NWC for the good reception accorded them. He pledged to work for the unity and success of the party in the state.
