Dr. Uduaghan re-joined his old party at his Unit 1, Ward 6, at Abigborodo, at his country home and was accompanied to the venue of getting his PDP ID Card by thousands of his supporters amid loud cheering and solidarity songs on.
“I am back to join forces with other party greats to strengthen our party, the largest party in Africa -PDP!,” the ex-governor had earlier stated on his Twitter handle.
The return to PDP is coming barely one year after he took a critical decision to join APC on 29 August,  2019, in protest of his alleged maltreatment in PDP.
Uduaghan, who was Delta State Governor for eight years in the build-up to the 2019 elections defected to the APC where he contested and lost the Delta South Senatorial seat in 2019 to incumbent Senator James Manager.
There have been insinuations that the former governor is planning a comeback to the PDP in a bid to boost his chances in 2023 as PDP now fully controlled the South-South region.
Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan met with Governor Ifeanyi Okoya two weeks ago to fine-tune plans to return to PDP, his former base. He also met with James Ibori, who was also a former governor in Delta State.
Emmanuel Uduaghan was the Governor of Delta State on PDP platform for eight years (2007-2015). He had earlier served as the State’s Commissioner for Health and later Secretary to the State Government under the administration of Ibori.
