A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Sen. Ighoyota Amori, has spoken on the rumoured plans by a former governor of Delta State, Emmanuel Uduaghan to decamp to the All Progressives Congress, APC, from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Amori told the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Abuja, that the party stakeholders were aware of Uduaghan’s plan to decamp and had begun talks with him.
He said that the leaders were reaching out to Uduaghan to jettison the idea, adding that he was being reminded that whatever his grievances may be, he should remember the “good nights’’ he had in PDP.
He also reacted to recent Supreme Court judgement which cleared Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, of wrongdoing in the false declaration of assets charges against him.
Amori said Saraki had every cause to celebrate.
Speaking on Uduaghan, he said, “All we are saying is that all the issues being raised can be addressed. When he was the governor, he addressed issues, so he should remain in the `family’ for the issues to be addressed.’’
Amori said further, “From the day Saraki emerged as the Senate President, they have subjected him to all sorts of undemocratic treatments, kicking him from one court to the other.
“In fact, they have even labelled him an armed robber, not only him but also his state governor.
“This is a man who was born with silver spoon, a man who was governor for eight years, to now become an armed robber in Offa, Kwara state. Don’t you think that is funny?
“Three years have been wasted pursing Saraki for nothing. Can you imagine that they went into his record of when he was governor 15 years ago?
“When a man gets such kind of judgment, he has reason to say everything he wants to. In fact, he has not said anything.’’
