PDP stal­wart, others de­fect to APC in Kogi

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Itodo Daniel Sule, Lokoja

A former or­gan­is­ing sec­re­tary of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) in Kogi State, Mr Peter Sal­ihu, week­end, de­fected to the All Pro­gres­sives Con­gress (APC) along­side his sup­port­ers.

Speak­ing at the de­fec­tion cer­e­mony in Abe­jukolo, head­quar­ters of Omala Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Coun­cil, Sal­ihu said that he and his sup­port­ers de­cided to em­brace the APC be­cause of the “self­less lead­er­ship qual­i­ties” of Gov­er­nor Ya­haya Bello.

“As a long stand­ing politi­cian, who un­der­stands the tricks of pol­i­tics in the state, I have de­cided to shift grounds by join­ing APC af­ter crit­i­cal anal­y­sis of the po­lit­i­cal ter­rain of the state, know­ing full well that it’s ei­ther you are in APC or you are out,” he said.

Spe­cial ad­viser to the Kogi State gov­er­nor on spe­cial du­ties, Mr Akor Adadu, who was present at the oc­ca­sion, thanked the peo­ple for sup­port­ing gov­er­nor Bello.

The coup was re­sisted in Turkey, that is how Nige­ri­ans will re­sist any at­tempt to im­peach the Pres­i­dent.”- Gov­er­nor of Edo State, Adams Osh­iom­hole.
