“I have spent many years with the APC, contributing to its growth and success. However, after careful consideration and consultations with my supporters and stakeholders, I have decided to join the PDP,” Amu stated.

Amu emphasised her belief in the PDP’s vision and leadership, highlighting that the party’s policies align more closely with her aspirations for the people of Owan. “The PDP has shown a commitment to progress and inclusivity, values that resonate deeply with me. I am confident that under the PDP, we can achieve the much-needed development in our communities,” she added.

“The people of Owan deserve effective representation and sustainable development. Ighodalo has a proven track record of service and dedication, and I am committed to mobilising support to ensure his victory,” Amu said.

This political realignment is expected to have significant implications for the Edo 2024 elections, as the PDP gains a formidable ally in Victoria Amu. Her commitment to delivering Owan Federal Constituency for the PDP could reshape the political landscape in the region, making the upcoming elections one to watch closely.
