by Oluwatosin Fatoyinbo

Two former speakers of the House of Assembly and a former Acting Governor of Kogi state, Clarance Obafemi have defected to the All Progressives Party (APC).

The National Chairman of the party, Chief John Oyegun, who received the defectors at the Lokoja Township stadium said the occasion marked the beginning of the end of the PDP as the ruling party in the state

Also speaking at the occassion,  one time Governor of the state, Mr Abubakar Audu, w said the dice has been cast, urging the people to stand firm in their quest to wrestle power from the PDP in the state.

During his address General Muhamadu Buhari urged Nigerians not to vote for “treasury looters” saying that the country under APC would be better and prosperous as the party was all out for positive change.

Former Vice President Abubakar Atiku, noted that power has to be wrestled from the PDP because teachers salaries have not been paid in the last 10 months.

However the Kogi State PDP Vice Chairman, Hon Mohammed Abdulrahaman, debunked the allegation of non-performance, saying it is baseless and unverifiable.

He told the Channels Television that the PDP has what it takes to win the state and that those who have defected will soon start coming back to the party when they are unable to get what they want in the APC.
