Representative of Edo North Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Francis Alimikhena has led several All Progressive Congress (APC) members to defect to the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).
Recall that in May, 2022 Alimikhena dumped the APC for the PDP where he won the 2023 ticket.
He will face the former APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole who emerged as the APC’s Edo North flagbearer.
The defectors explained explained on Friday that they left the APC to join Senator Alimikhena in PDP because of what they called “injustice.”
They said APC denied Alimikhena the return ticket in favour of the former Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole.
Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, said he was elated to reunite with those he had shared his political journey.
“You’re welcome to the PDP, together we will change the face of Edo North and the state in general.
“The aspect that gladdens my heart most is the invitation to Edo North to witness a tsunami of defection that will coast PDP to victory at all levels in 2023,” he said.
