Owie applauded Okadigbo for his boldness and decision not to join the establishment for patronage, but however, admonished him to follow the footsteps of his late father and render service to the nation.
A statement by ADP National Publicity Secretary, Otunba Yemi Adetoyinbo, in Abuja, said “Pharaoh promised to uphold the legacies of his father and work with other Nigerians, to achieve the type of Nigeria for which his father laboured and died.
“He lamented that Nigerians were suffering and needed a new lease of life, which he said Nigerian leaders must provide in the interest of all.”
Okadigbo was accompanied to the party’s national secretariat to formalize his membership by a crowd of supporters.
