Four members of the Edo State House of Assembly have indicted their readiness to dump the ruling party in the state, the All Progressives Congress.

There have been complaints about the running of the affairs of the APC by the state Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

Beside the complaints about the running of the party by Oshiomhole, the PDP in Edo State has also embarked on aggressive membership drive.
It was learnt that the PDP in the state is desirous of having political heavyweights dump the APC and others parties for the PDP ahead of the visit of President Goodluck Jonathan to the state in the next few weeks.
Jonathan is expected to welcome the new members to the party during his visit.
The next gubernatorial election in the state comes up in 2016, while the state will also partake in next year’s general election.
