Osamede Adun, a chieftain of the Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and a Benin high chief has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Adun, who led thousands of APC members to defect in Benin also placed a curse on anyone who returned to the party.
Speaking at PDP secretariat in Benin, Adun said they dumped APC due to the large-scale poverty and high handedness which the ruling party was notorious for.
He said: “We are back home to the PDP. I am placing a curse on anybody who comes here to spy on us with the intention of going back to the APC.
“There is a curse on anybody here who goes back to APC. We are through with APC and will never go back to that party.
“Woe betides anybody here who goes back to APC. There is poverty everywhere. That is the only achievement of APC. We are back to make PDP better than we met it.”
