A CHIEFTAIN of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State, Chief Kainji Aluge Obia, has stated that Accord Party (AP) is part of PDP in Delta State hence he has been campaigning for the victory of the AP candidate for the Federal House of Representatives, Ika constituency, Doris Uboh, and Victor Ochei for Senate Delta North Senatorial District.
Obia, the Director General of Hon. Doris Uboh Campaign Organization, and also the Ika South Local Government Area Co-ordinator of Team Ochei stated this in a chat with journalists.
He said, “I am a card-carrying member of PDP despite the fact that I am working for Hon. Doris Uboh and Rt. Hon Victor Ochei, Accord Party House of Representatives and Senatorial candidates respectively.
“We are working on the precedents set by our PDP leaders in Ika South who worked for the opposition in 2011. As we campaign for Uboh and Ochei, we are very much aware that the PDP governorship candidate for Delta State, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, is a very good and sellable material. That is why during our campaigns, we also used the medium to campaign for Okowa. We have been told by some PDP exponents that Accord Party is part of PDP”.
Obia urged the people of Ika South to vote for Uboh because according to him, Uboh is the best House of Representatives member which Ika federal constituency has ever produced. “If you are a man and married to two wives, you should know, which between the two that is better. Uboh during the time she represented Ika federal constituency at the National Assembly, executed over 52 projects. She sponsored over three bills including the popular National Minimum Wage Bill, unlike her successor”, he added.
