JUST IN: Delta PDP Chieftain Dumps Okowa, Joins APC After Tinubu’s Victory (PHOTO)


Chief Aribogha Johnny, a prominent chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party in Delta State and the Koromotiemowei of Ogbe Ijoh Warri Kingdom, formally defected to the All Progressives Congress on Wednesday.

Johnny and his supporters defected just hours after the Independent National Electoral Commission declared APC presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu the winner of the 2023 election.

In a signed statement, the former PDP chieftain said his “decision came not only as a result of the outcome of the recently concluded presidential election, but as a result of the level of marginalisation and disregard he has faced in the Peoples Democratic Party for many years.”

According to him, his political allegiance had been with the PDP until the party leadership began treating him as a “low class member,” despite his contributions to the party’s successes at the state level in recent years.

As such, I have decided to move to a party where my efforts in the politics of the state and beyond will be recognised and appreciated,” he stated.

The APC leadership in Delta, led by the Director General of the party’s governorship campaign council, Elder Godsday Orubebe, and Chief Bosin Ebikeme, the director of the party’s contact and mobilization campaign council, expressed joy in receiving Johnny and his supporters, noting that his decision was in the right direction.

They stated that the Delta APC would regard him as a genuine member who would participate in party decision making.
