Today in Edo, 26,318 members and supporters of the All Progressives Congress in Etsako Federal Constituency of Edo State led by a former Governorship Aspirant and Deputy Director, Buhari Support Organizations(BSO), Chief Blessing Agbomhere join the People’s Democratic Party in Fugar, headquarters of Etsako Central Local Government Area.
Chief Blessing Agbomhere and his followers were received by the South-South People’s Democratic Party Caucus led by the South-South Vice Chairman of the Party, Hon. Emmanuel Ogidi, Edo State PDP Chairman, Chief Dan Osi Orbih, the PDP Edo Governorship  Candidate in the last election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the Party’s Deputy National Women Leader, Hajia Adiza Umoru, Chief Abu Mepata, Hon. Emmanuel Momoh, Chris Nehikhare, the Party’s State Publicity Secretary and a host of other PDP Bigwigs.
 Chief Blessing Agbomhere, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress who worked for the election of President Muhammadu Buhari as Deputy Director, Buhari Support Organizations and wrote so much about him in poems, odes and literatures in all the media and with the books; ‘WIND OF CHANGE: 72 LEADERSHIP QUALITIES OF BUHARI THE GOOD SAMARITAN’ and another, ‘HEART OF A PATRIOT: UNDERSTANDING THE BUHARI CHANGE AGENDA FROM HIS THOUGHTS’ in support of President Buhari’s aspiration and administration has dumped him to join Atiku Abubakar, President Goodluck Jonathan and other patriots in the People’s Democratic Party opposition to save Nigeria from corruption, insecurity and disunity.

During a press interview, Blessing Agbomhere expressed his sadness over 59,857 illegal migrants from Nigeria, who are mostly the people of Etsako and Edo that have been forced to cross the the desert by trekking and sailing the Mediterranean Sea by inflated balloons to Europe between 2015 and 2017 as a result of the poverty inflicted by this administration on Edo people. Last the Deputy Head of EU Delegation in Nigeria, Mr Richard Young said “within this number of people coming from Nigeria, 2012 was 800, in 2013 the number was 2,900, in 2014 the number was 8,700 and in 2015 and 2016 the number arithmetically increased to 45,500” and among these numbers so many Etsako people have lost their life, Blessing said.
Chief Blessing Agbomhere said “the editorial opinion of international and domestic media, especially those who endorsed Buhari’s candidacy in 2015 have indicated that APC administration is failing and as much as I have resisted the temptation to criticize the administration as a mother won’t castigate her child in public, my loyalty to Nigeria and my obedience to Godly injunctions in the Holy Bible and the Noble Quran which have formed our national ethical responsibilities as enshrined in the Constitution, and my commitment to good governance will not permit me to maintain silence or remain in the APC”. 
He said “rather than deepening democracy and good governance, the APC administration has squandered its goodwill, and deepened corruption and abuse of public trust”.  
Chief Blessing Agbomhere said “we supported and voted for President Buhari for three good reasons; to provide leadership, to ensure security of life and property, and to curb corruption, believing that when these objectives are pursued with sincerity, every other aspect of our national life will begin to function for our nation’s development”.  He said “in total violation of our party’s manifestos, the nation has never been this disunited, with insecurity threatening the survival of all citizens in Etsako, Edo and everywhere in Nigeria while the fight against corruption has been ridiculed to a mere caricature”.
Blessing Agbomhere complained that “the ‘entertaining’ dissensions and disputation between Senator Dino Melaye and Governor Yahaya Bello in Kogi, Senator Shehu Sani and Nasir Elrufai in Kaduna, Governor Nyesom Wike and Hon. Rotimi Amaechi in Rivers, Governor Ganduje and Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso in Kano, my humble self and Adams Oshiomhole in Edo, and the inter-agencies rivalry under the referee-ship of this administration have turned our nation into a theater of absurdity, inanity and nonsensicality”. He laments the President’s silence over so many disastrous but avoidable situations that have caused  innumerable damages to our growing democracy. 

“Among other such situations was the physical attack, assault and attempted assassination on my person by Adams Oshiomhole, the former Governor of Edo State, the current Deputy Governor of Edo State, the current Secretary to Edo State Government and the former, who is still the current Chief Security Officer to the Governor of Edo State when I criticized Adams Oshiomhole on AIT’s People, Politics and Power program for deceiving President Muhammadu Buhari to commission the acclaimed 5Star Hospital; out of desperation to impress Mr President to get another plum job, Adams rented medical equipment which were later returned to their owners, the Stella Obasanjo Hospital, immediately President Buhari left Benin. And till date the hospital is still under lock and key, and has become a breeding ground warehousing rodents that are spreading Lassa Fever in Edo and Nigeria despite the billions of Edo people’s money put in the project”, and this he laments, “has dented President Buhari’s integrity”. 
Talking to one of the ‘decampees’, who is the current APC LGA Youth Leader of Etsako Central, and former Secretary to the Local Council, Benjamin Enakpene said “Blessing Agbomhere is a genius and a godsend to the people of Etsako, Edo and Nigeria who is on a mission, and he is a blessing to even generation of Etsako and Nigerians yet unborn. I have studied Blessing Agbomhere over time. Blessing, popular called Mr Bee is like the BEE who produces honey, and at the same time can sting when his believe in God, in the rule of law and in good governance is under threat.
The Etsako West LGA founding APC Organising Secretary, Chief Wisdom Idaewor said “Blessing Agbomhere is a dogged apostle of productive leadership, and leadership by sacrifice, and sacrifice to making life better for the people. He is a man of many sacrifices, and someone who can spend his last to make life better for the next neighbor. We have urged Blessing to lead us to the PDP to move Etsako and Nigeria forward, as most of the things happening under the current administration never, and never happened under PDP’s administration of Nigeria, so instead of allowing APC kill Nigeria, it is better for Nigerians to kill APC”.
