Stay in Your Party and form a
formidable Opposition – APC
tells defecting PDP
members

By Osei Peters

The National chairman of All Progressive Congress (APC) John Oyegun, on Saturday said that the gale of defections by politicians was not good for Nigeria’s political
development.

Oyegun, who spoke to newsmen in Benin
shortly after casting his vote, advised those
defecting to the winning party to rather
form a formidable opposition to enrich the
nation’s democracy.

“Many opposition party members have
defected to APC just because they lost out,
that is not good for political development.
One would have advised that opposition
members should stay where they are, and
form a formidable opposition party.” Mr.
Oyegun said.

He described the governorship and houses of assembly elections as “the most decent, orderly and peaceful” ever conducted in Edo.

Meanwhile, the APC national chairman
won the election in his polling unit. Oredo
East: Ward 2, Unit 1 Polling Unit, the first
time since 1991 when he was elected governor.
