It was a joyful day for the Chairman, Executive Committee and members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Ward 5, Ovu, in Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta State as the Delta State Progressive People’s Alliance, PPA, Governorship Candidate in the last general elections, Dr. O’Diakpo Obire, returned to the All Progressives Congress with his Deputy Candidate, Engr. Rex Biose and his teeming supporters across the State.


Dr. Obire through a press statement on the 26th of June, 2018, announced his decision to withdraw his membership of the APC due to what he described then as “protracted and intractable rancor“ between two factions that rocked the party over the control of its leadership in Delta State and as one of the frontline Governorship aspirants, he decided to seek the actualization of his dreams elsewhere, hence, the PPA

Receiving him at the party's Ward 05 Secretariat in Ovu, the APC Ward Chairman, Chief Anibor Ukavwe, the Exco members and notable party leaders applauded his decision to return to the party, saying that Obire is a political asset that would boost the strength of APC in Ethiope East LGA and Delta State at large.

According to Chief Ukavwe, “Our son is back son and we are here happy to receive his home-coming.

Responding, the very elated Obire said he had to return to the party after a brief sabbatical to run for the Governorship of the state on the platform of the Progressive People’s Alliance, PPA, but ensured that all his supporters across Delta State voted for President Muhammadu Buhari and the Delta Central APC Senatorial Candidate, Senator Ovie Omo – Agege as a matter of duty and service to his people during the presidential and National Assembly elections.

In his words: "I left in anger because there was lingering internal rancour over the leadership of the party while elections were close and it was a very wrong time for a party in opposition in a state like Delta to have contentious issues, but from where I was slogging it out for the number seat in the state, I did my best for the APC and here I am returning home to my people and to further ensure that together, we can build a stronger, more peaceful and united APC in our state”.

O’Diakpo Obire further called on the leadership of the party in Delta State to ensure the continuous maintenance of the peace and unity already existing in the party at the moment and give maximum support to party members elected and, or appointed into various offices so they can discharge their statutory duties and responsibilities diligently for the overall benefit of the people.

The major highlight of the event was the revalidation of his membership of All Progressives Congress, APC, as he was formally welcomed back by all members into the party in Delta State.
