Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has maintained that the defection of Senator Peter Nwaoboshi to the All Progressives Congress (APC) is not going to have an effect on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Naija News reviews that the governor made this recognized by way of his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Olisa Ifeajika.
He acknowledged that the lawmaker’s transfer to the APC wouldn’t have any impression on PDP’s dominance within the state.
“The fantastic thing about democracy is that individuals are allowed to maneuver to any social gathering they like. The motion of Senator Peter Nwaoboshi doesn’t translate to the dominance of APC in Delta.
“Sure, Nwaoboshi has gone to APC however I can let you know that the impression of his defection can not rattle PDP on this state. Delta is a PDP State and can stay so.
“That APC now has two senators does not translate to it being able to take Delta in elections; they cannot win one-twentieth of Delta electorate,” he added.
Recall that the Chairman of the APC Caretaker Committee and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, had introduced Nawaoboshi to President Muhammadu Buhari on the Presidential Villa.
Buhari had described the defection of the lawmaker representing Delta North District within the Senate as a welcome improvement.
