With barely 48 hours to Saturday’s presidential election, the Buhari presidential campaign coordinator in Cross River State, Engineer U.Oko, has defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP).
Uko, who defected with all his supporters, pledged to mobilise support for the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan.
He told a crowd of PDP supporters in Bekwarra that his decision to quit the APC for the PDP was informed by President Jonathan’s sterling achievements in office.
On hand to receive him back into the party was the PDP candidate for the House of Representatives elections for Bekwarra/Obudu/Obanliku Federal Constituency, Barrister Legor Idagbo.
Idagbo commended him for the bold step and stated that unlike the broom, the PDP umbrella was big enough to accommodate everyone.
He noted that Oko was a grass root mobiliser and an astute politician who will contribute a great deal to the continued growth of the PDP in the State.
He assured Oko that he and all his supporters would be taken care of in the PDP.
Barrister Idagbo also stated that it was clear from all indications that President Jonathan is the more popular candidate and will win the Presidential elections with a comfortable margin.
In attendance where PDP stalwarts across the Federal Constituency to celebrate the return of Oko to the party.
