Fiery lawyer, Jesutega Onokpasa, has dumped the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
￼In a statement on Friday, Onokpasa blamed Olorogun O’tega Emerho, and Mr. Samuel Adjogbe, Executive Director Projects of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC for his defection.
“On behalf of O’tega and Adjogbe, I ended up quarrelling with political friends and associates of mine I had known ever before I met them”, he said.
“When APC started in Delta, it had no voice and I gave it the most committed and pronounced voice imaginable, making enemies of erstwhile political associates for the benefit of those two ingrates.
“For APC, I fought Governor Okowa, fought Tompolo. For O’tega and Adjogbe, I fought all manner of foes only for the ingrates to turn around and stab me in the back.
”I thank God for bringing me back to base. APC is a party of pathological liars, backstabbers and famished men out to milk Delta State and Nigeria dry.
“O’tega and Adjogbe are the personification of self-centeredness. If APC has anything to offer, it would have proved it by now. It is a party of hungry, desperate, money-grubbing men with absolutely nothing to offer the common people.
“At the core of APC’s opposition to Okowa is crass tribalism and unconscionable mediocrity.”
