Imansuangbon had penultimate week joined the Labour Party, also on Tuesday, 20th June registered his membership with the party at his Ward 2 Esan South-East Local Government Area of the State.

The trio of Ken Imansuangbon, popularly known as the ‘Riceman’,  Andrew Emwanta, Amen Ogbemudia and other defectors were received at the party’s secretariat located at Ogbelaka Street by the State Chairman of the party, Comrade Kelly Ogbaloi and his excos.  

Imansuangbon while addressing party’s faithfuls recalled his sojourn in party politics and declared that his defection from the PDP had put an end to his painful years of deceit in the hands of political godfathers whom he lamented never meant well for the state.

He declared, “My eyes are now opened and I have decided to take my case to God almighty and to Edo people.  I don’t want to put my case in the hands of the godfathers anymore. 

“I’m tired of the oppression of the godfathers, tired of the pain and deception; I want to now take my faith and destiny into God’s hand and the good people of Edo state. With God and Edo people my 2024 is sure.”

Also, Andrew Emwanta, who resigned his membership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) last week challenged Governor Godwin Obaseki to give account of trillions naira accruable to the state since 2016 and noted that the time for propagandas and MoU’s are over.

He lampooned Obaseki for imposition and destroying the PDP in the state accusing him of now occupying the position of godfatherism in the State.

“In 2020, when the governor came into the PDP, we had people like the Dan Orbih and the others because of lack of relationship skills, these people have been ostracized from the party; little wonder the party performed abysmally.

“At the first ballot in February this year, the 9 Federal Constituencies PDP won zero, Senatorial election, PDP won, zero. It has never happened in the history of PDP in Edo state that a party in government will perform abysmally, for me that was a referendum in government.

“Over N3billion have been spent on Observer and Edo Broadcasting Service, EBS, all kinds of  consultants have performed surgeries on  Nigerian Observer Newspapers and EBS and nothing to show. This is government that since it came in has received over one trillion and nothing to account for; it is the height of fraud.”

Also, daughter of the former Governor of the then Bendel state, Amen Ogbemudia and a onetime Executive Director under former governor Adams Oshiomhole, decried the state of decay and rots in public schools in the state and promised that Labour party’s administration will right the many wrongs in the state.
