A former Delta State House of Assembly member, Hon Lieg- Lord Keston Okoro, and supporters will on Friday defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Udu Local Government Area of state.
Keston Okoro was a former lawmaker representing Udu Constituency at the DTHA and senatorial candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in the 2019 general elections.
He will be received at his home town of Aladja by the leaders of PDP in Udu council area of the state.
Addressing newsmen ahead of the defection, a chieftain of the party in the council, Andrew Gbise, said the addition of Chief Keston Okoro to the PDP will change the political space and give fresh energy to the party in Udu.
He noted that Udu was already in a festive mood in preparation for the event where the PDP LGA Chairman, David Siloko, would be on ground to receive the immediate past National President of Performing Musician Association of Nigeria (PMAN) into the PDP fold.
‘’We are excited that Chief Keston Okoro is coming back into the PDP fold. He is the king of the boys and in no time, Udu will witness tremendous political vigor and activities to drive preparations for the 2023 general elections.
“Everything is set for the event which promises to turn things around for the good of the party in Udu’’, Gbise said.
He added that Keston Okoro had sent signals to all his teeming fans and supporters particularly the various youth leaders in Urhobo land who look up to him as their role model to join him in the PDP.
‘’The coming of Keston Okoro shall take the land by the storm and register a strong force that will dictate the tide of political direction in favour of the PDP. I therefore enjoin all men of goodwill, all sons and daughters of Udu to join the moving train for a better Udu’’, Gbise added.
