/> Thousands Of PDP, APGA, ADC Members Dump Party For APC, Back Obaseki | Welcome to praizeblog

AHEAD the Wednesday
governorship election in Edo state, over ten
thousand members of the Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP), All Progressives Grand Alliance
(APGA), United Progressives Party (UPP) and
the African Democratic Congress, ADC, have
endorsed the candidate of the All Progressives
Congress (APC), Mr Godwin Obaseki.

Speaking at the defection, the PDP Youth
Chairman of Egor local government Area, Mr
Lambart Omoregie who lamented that his
defection was long overdue said, “I have been in
darkness and I have seen the light. And it is my
strong believe that Obaseki is a better candidate
to Ize-Iyamu so we all are supporting him”.
Meanwhile, the running mate to Obaseki Philip
Shaibu and over five thousand APC members
embarked on a sweep away PDP exercise in Edo
Edo North senatorial district Friday asserting that
the PDP will not get up to 10 per cent votes
from the district.
Also, the ADC state chairman, Hon Frank Osifo
who lead all the members of the party to the
APC described said, “Today is historical for the
APC. We are here to effect the change across
the state. After going through the profile of all
the candidates, we have come to realise that Mr
Godwin Obaseki has been prepared to govern
“A man that is knowledgeable, a man that knows
the problem of the people, a man that has the
people’s interest at heart and has the
prerequisites to be governor. It is based on
these that we have come to join the APC to
develop the state”. He added.
The Labour Party Treasurer, Mr Fred Uwangue
who lead leaders of the party into the APC said,
the development in the state is crucial especially
as what the party stands for is progress.
According to him, “All my leaders here have been
in the Labour Party from the inception. What we
used to see in Edo is lucky stone and they made
every area in this state turn ‘Morocco and Spain’.
People that couldn’t tar the road leading to
theories houses and villages, it was Oshiomhole
that did it for them.
Responding, the APC candidate Mr Godwin
Obaseki described the defection as an
earthquake in the politics of the state saying “I
now believe that Edo people know what
democracy in Nigeria is all about. I have not
seen where people will leave their parties with
their candidate to another party but I have seen
it today.

“Today’s politics has gone passed talking, what
we have now is technological politics and we
have show to the people of Edo state that
government can actually work. So I want to
thank all of you who have decided to join us; it
is the right decision and remember to vote for
the APC on the 28 September”.
