The former Special Adviser on Media to Adams Oshiomhole, Mr Kassim Afegbua, has dumped the All progressive Congress Party with thousands of his supporters to the PDP.
Afegbua, who was also Commissioner for Information in Edo, was received by the PDP Chairman, Chief Dan Orbih, at Okpella, Etsako East Local Government Area of the state yesterday who said he took the “bold step” in rejoining his former party, because of an infrastructural deficit in his community.
He said that though he served under the APC- led administration in the state for 8 years, he felt dissatisfied, because of the state of roads and lack of development in Okpella community. Afegbua also lamented the absence of electricity in the community and complained of high inflation and rising costs of commodities across the local markets.

He said the APC members were defecting to the PDP on account of poor roads and neglect of the community by the state government. He said that the PDP was sympathetic with flood victims in the locality and blamed the state government for what he termed “slow response” to the problem.
