Thousands of his supporters were alleged to have already stormed Abigborodo ahead of the defection. As report has it that the ex-governor had finalised plans to return to the PDP.
He was said to have had a cold-war with his successor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa.
The NATION reports that Uduaghan was recently sighted at the Annual General Meeting of the Nigeria Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) at the Delta State University Teaching Hospital, Oghara with Governor Okowa and his predecessor, Chief James Ibori in attendance.
