‘Influx of APC members, others into PDP signifies victory’

By Matthew Ajai-Kume

The 2023 governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Benue State, Titus Uba has said the influx of political bigwigs that have dumped All Progressives Congress (APC) and other political parties to PDP signified the obvious victory of the party in the 2023 general elections.

“The influx of political bigwigs that have continued to dump APC and other political parties is obvious that there is nothing that could threaten the victory of the umbrella party in next year’s general elections,” he maintained.

“I laud the defection of Member representing Katsina-Ala West Constituency at the State House of Assembly, Hon Jacob Orban from the All Progressives Congress to the Peoples Democratic Party,” Uba stated.

He made this known Friday at Akume Atongo Stadium, Katsina-Ala during the decamping ceremony of Jacob Orban, Member representing Katsina-Ala West Constituency from APC to PDP.

He stated that PDP is the only democratic party in Nigeria and the  lawmaker’s defection is a step in the right direction.

The PDP gubernatorial candidate maintained that, Orban’s defection to the PDP has brought the total number of PDP Assembly members to 26 and has made Katsina-Ala Local Government a stronghold of the party for next year’s elections.

In an address on behalf of the defectors, the representative of Katsina-Ala West State Constituency, Orban appreciated the leadership of PDP for accepting him and his supporters into its fold and promised to mobilize support for the party to win all elective positions in next year’s general elections.

Present at the defection ceremony were; the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, Senator representing Benue North East, Gabriel Suswam, House of Representatives Member for Makurdi/Guma, Benjamin Mzondu, that of Sankera, Richard Gbande, PDP state Assembly members among others.
