The National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorchia Ayu, on Monday, predicted the defection of Minister of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs, George Akume, to the party.

Ayu stated this when he received a member of the House of Representatives representing Gboko/Tarka constituency, Dr. John Dyegh, into the party at a ceremony in the area.

He said: “Your lost son, George Akume, is coming back to the PDP. I am saying this based on what I know.

“He will come back to the PDP as a prodigal son.

“I earlier prophesied that Akume would hold a broom and he did. Now, I am prophesying that he will come back to the PDP.

“When he comes back, do not reject him but make sure you rehabilitate him because where he is now, he is not thinking straight.

“He was a lost son, a prodigal son. Only rehabilitate him and make sure he thinks properly.”

The former Senate President described Dyegh as a prodigal son who had seen the light and returned home.

He urged the PDP to heartily receive him and accord him all the necessary support.

In his remark, the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, said the All Progressives Congress (APC) had failed in all facets, hence the return of Dyegh and other defectors to the PDP.

Ortom assured the defectors that they would all be treated fairly.

Earlier, Dyegeh said he rejoined the PDP because of the national chairman and Ortom who has been constructing massive projects in the state.
