PDP’s moving closer to 2019 victory— Obuah

Rivers State Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Felix Obuah, has said the gale of high profile defections from All Progressives Congress, APC, has brightened the chances of PDP’s victory in 2019.
Obuah said their departure has put APC in disarray, stressing that the development has confirmed the unwavering position of PDP that APC is visionless, lame and has nothing to offer the masses other than poverty, hunger and bloodletting. 

Recalling that the decampees, which include Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki; Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed; Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom; Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal; National Publicity Secretary of APC, Bolaji Abdullahi and a host of some state assembly members constitute the ‘heart and soul’ of the party, Obuah said the development now marks the end of the road for APC. He added that the ultimate beneficiaries of the development are the generality of the Nigerian citizens, whose political system has been transformed to that of animal kingdom. where sheer opposing views are regarded as coup d’état that must be suppressed with gunshots and machine guns through the instrumentality of willing security agents. His words: “This hurricane in APC supports the fact that whatever you sow is what you will reap. They came through the back door, but Nigerians are now wiser and seeing their true colours. PDP remains the hope for Nigerians and is gearing up to salvage the country in 2019.”
