APC Responsible For Labour Party Crisis - Deputy National Chairman

A leader of the Labour Party (LP) in Olamaboro council area of Kogi State, David Ameh, has defected from the party and led 2000 of his supporters to the All Progressive Congress (APC).

The defectors were received by the Kogi State Deputy Governor, Chief Edward Onoja in Okpo headquarters of the council area alongside others who joined from other political parties.

Ameh, while speaking during the rally in Okpo, said that after a comprehensive analysis he had realized that the LP was not going to have a meaningful headway in the 2023 polls and decided to pitch his tent with the ruling party.

Receiving the defectors, the deputy governor, who was elated, said he was happy that the defectors eventually saw the ‘light of the day’, saying he remained unprovoked inspite of the consistent attacks of Ameh and his supporters against him and the ruling party.

Speaking further, Onoja said he was glad when  Ameh came close to him and personally testified that unlike what he had being told he was quite amicable to work with.

Listing the achievements of Yahaya Bello Administration, the deputy governor assured the defectors that Kogi state stands to benefit hugely if the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu is elected, “He (Tinubu) is the most notable politician in Africa who has the capacity to fix the economy and transform the country.”

The deputy governor therefore called on the people of the state and indeed all Nigerians to come out enmass and vote for Tinubu and all the APC candidates in the forthcoming general election.
