He stated that his defection was in the overall interest of his constituency, seeking progress and unity.

Ogba said:

I am happy to join them in building blocks which would translate to mansions of delivering democratic dividends to the people. What people say does not matter but ideologies which transform the lives of the people.

“The state governor has shown that his administration is people oriented which is embedded in the people’s charter of needs mantra.

I should not be a clog in the wheels of progress as I want my people, party and state to progress. I come from a politically volatile local government area which should make us eschew violence but lay claim to what is rightly due to us.

“I defected with all labour party stakeholders in the constituency as council has become one with the merger of political forces from the east and west constituencies.’’
