PDP’s Lawyer Decamps to ACN

Coordinator of the legal team of General Charles Airhiavbere, the Peoples Democratic Party candidate in the July 14, 2012 governorship election in Edo State, Kelvin Aigbe, has dumped him for the Action Congress of Nigeria.

Another top leader of the PDP and proprietor of Paragon Demonstration Group of Schools in Edo State, Martins Osakwe, has also joined the ACN.

Aigbe and Osakwe moved into the ACN with hundreds of their supporters.
Osakwe, who spoke on behalf of the decampees, said their action was borne out of their desire to join Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State in his developmental stride.
According to Osakwe: “When you take a child to school and the child keeps failing and fails 18 subjects, as a parent, won’t you think twice?
“You may have to ask the child to go and learn a trade.

“For me, I come from the five junction area and the old women keep saying greet Oshiomhole for us.
“We are leaving a group of shadow chasers, petty people.
“It is a party of deceivers.”
Osakwe said the only credible leader in the Peoples Democratic Party, General Godwin Abbe, has quit politics.
He then said: “What are we still doing in PDP?
“It is never too late to develop Edo State.
“We are here to serve.
“We have come to be loyal members of the Action Congress of Nigeria.”
On his part, Aigbe said: “We are here to serve.
“We have discovered there is no need changing a winning team.
“What PDP could not do for eight years, somebody came and in five years someone has performed marvelously.
“I want to thank you for all you are doing.
“You are doing well.
“The sky is your limit.”

Receiving them, Governor Oshiomhole commended them for their courage to exit the sinking PDP.
According to the governor: “Action Congress of Nigeria as a democratic party does not have one owner.
“It belongs to the members.
“In our membership, there is no age.
“So it does not really matter to us when you joined, so long as you have joined.
“I want to appreciate your level of sophistication for being in a different platform and yet appreciate what the other person is doing.

“On my part, I am strengthened to do more of what we have been doing.”
Oshiomhole expressed gratitude to the people of Benin Kingdom for their support, adding: “I am absolutely committed that with all of us working together, this kingdom will not be the same again.”
