Mr. Emmanuel Udaughan, the Delta state ex Governor has signed a new deal with the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and has defected from his party, the Peoples Democratic Party to APC.
Emmanuel said pressure made him to sign for APC, but said the Nation Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole did not facilitate his new signing.
My political future was responsible for my move, I have studied the political context in Delta and come to conclusion, to save Delta and huge number of people who are my supporters, the right thing to do is to dump PDP and sign a new deal with APC.
Although I have discussed with Oshiomhole about my move, I also asked him to discuss with my leader and mentor James Onanefe Ibori who was a former governor of Delta state.
Though I have dumped my party and joined APC, the truth remains that James Ibori is my political leader, Emmanuel said.
In a short while, APC will be reaching out to James Ibori to persuade him into joining the party and make others join him in APC, WAR has learned.
