Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Vic­tor Sorokwu, As­aba

The All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) will take over Delta and Cross River states in 2019, the party’s chair­man in Delta State, Prophet Jones Ode Erue, has said.

Prophet Ode Erue, who asked party stal­warts in the two states to em­bark on ag­gres­sive regis­tra­tion of new mem­bers, made the pre­dic­tion shortly after pre­sen­ta­tion of fore­most opposition leader in Delta State, Chief Great Ovedje Og­boru and for­mer Speaker of Delta State House of Assem­bly, Vic­tor Ochei among oth­ers to the APC na­tional lead­er­ship in Abuja.

Ac­cord­ing to him, the na­tional leader of the APC, Sen­a­tor Ahmed Tin­ubu, and mem­bers of the Na­tional Work­ing Committee (NWC) have de­clared that the Delta and Cross River were ripe for takeover in the South-South re­gion come 2019.

“With the com­ing in of Chief Og­boru and Hon. Ochei, we should go back to the 270 wards and open our doors for regis­tra­tion of new mem­bers. We’re aware that the PDP is al­ready jit­tery and they have started go­ing round giv­ing money to buy back some of their mem­bers, who are set to join our party. But we are ready for them,” he said.
