A chieftain of the Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and a Benin high chief Osamede Adun, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Chief Adun, who led thousands of APC members to defect to the PDP in Benin, went further to place a curse on anyone who returned to the party.
Speaking at the PDP secretariat in Benin, Chief Adun accused the APC of inflicting large-scale poverty on the populace and high handedness in conducting affairs of the party.
He said: “We are back home to the PDP. I am placing a curse on anybody who comes here to spy on us with the intention of going back to the APC.
“There is a curse on anybody here who goes back to APC. We are through with APC and will never go back to that party.
“Woe betides anybody here who goes back to APC. There is poverty everywhere. That is the only achievement of APC. We are back to make PDP better than we met it.”
