Emmanuel Uduaghan, the immediate past governor of Delta State, has returned to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after being in the All Progressives Congress (APC) for one year.
Uduaghan re-joined the PDP at his Unit 1, Ward 6, at Abigborodo, his country home, in Delta State and was accompanied to the venue by thousands of his supporters on Monday.
“I am back to join forces with other party greats to strengthen our party, the largest party in Africa -PDP!,” the former governor wrote on his Twitter handle on Monday.
Uduaghan’s decision to return to the PDP comes a year after he defected to the APC on 29 August 2019, in protest over his alleged maltreatment in the PDP.
He contested and lost the Delta-South senatorial seat in the 2019 general elections under the platform of the APC to incumbent Senator James Manager.
