The former Governor is expected to lead thousands of his supporters to the PDP at his Unit, in Ward 6, Abigborodo, Warri North local government area of the state.
Thousands of his supporters were alleged to have already stormed Abigborodo ahead of the defection.
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.
