A stalwart of the ruling political party in Nigeria, All Progressives Congress, APC, and the federal house of representatives candidate of Isoko federal constituency in the 2019 elections, Hon Joel-Onowakpo Thomas has debunked the rumours going about the airspace of his imminent decamping to the People Democratic Party, PDP, after the former Governor of Delta State, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan decamped back to the opposition party, PDP.
This has become imperative to clear the air and put sleeping dogs to lie knowing fully well the political gimmicks and scandals the rumour peddlers are fostering to dent his scintillating and blazing political image. It is better earlier to clear the air and put a stop to this shenanigans.
It is undoubtedly true that the ex-governor of Delta State, His Excellency, Dr Emmanuel Ewetan Uduaghan, is a longtime friend and was a boss, in which during in reign as the number one citizen of Delta State, Hon Joel-Onowakpo Thomas served in full capacity as the Chairman, Delta State Board of Internal Revenue.
It is also true that coincidentally, both men decamped to the ruling party, APC, to pursue their respective political ambitions and to join hands with fellow party members of the APC and the President of our great Nation, President Muhammadu Buhari, to achieve and fulfill his campaign promises to over one hundred and eighty million Nigerians, at home and in diaspora.
Why His Excellency, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan has deemed it necessary to return back to the PDP, which it his right according to Section 40 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999, Hon Joel-Onowakpo Thomas has deemed it sacrosanct to reiterate his commitment to APC and the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Hon Joel-Onowakpo Thomas who stated this when he granted a telephone interview to the press house said, “let me put it on records here that, I am a member of the APC, a card carrying member of the APC, the one and only (unopposed, unanimously adopted) House of Representatives Candidate of the party in 2019 election.”
“I have no plans now or in the near future to leave the APC for another party. (This is without prejudice to my rights to choice of association). If there are rumors (which is usual in politics), please ignore same.”
“I am therefore encouraging all of you to remain focused and build bridges and support all the organs of the party in the federal constituency.”
“We may be in difficult times, but I believe with perseverance, we will overcome.”
“Many thanks and God bless you richly in Jesus Christ Name, Amen.”
