The defectors which include several members from Monday Okpebholo’s ward, Uwessan Ward II cited his poor performance as their reason for leaving the APC.

They alleged that the APC candidate, who is also a serving Senator, had done nothing to ameliorate the hardship faced by the people in Uwessan his village which lacks access roads but built his personal house in Irrua due to the bad roads in his village.

The defectors praised Governor Obaseki for the work done on the road from Uromi to Uwessan. They said that this is the same road the APC candidate now uses to come to his village.
They also alleged that his representation has been poor with absolutely nothing to show for it.

Monday Okpebholo has been accused of diverting about N650 Million Naira earmarked for Constituency projects in Edo Central Senatorial district with nothing to show for it.
