The campaign train of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, hit Igalamela/Odolu and Ofu Local Government areas, weekend, with the governor and the candidate of the party in the November 21 governorship poll, Idris Wada, assuring the people of continued delivery of democracy dividends.
At Ofu Local Government Area, the home base of the candidate of the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, Prince Abubakar Audu, 12,700 APC members officially defected to PDP from All Progressives Congress, APC.
One of the defectors, Simeon Adejoh, told Vanguard that their decision was hinged on the transformation agenda of Governor Wada.
Speaking on behalf of the people of the local government, the member representing the constituency in the state House of Assembly, Elder Friday Sani Makama, assured the governor that PDP would win over 80 percent of the votes in the area.
He said: “I will continue to say it that APC cannot penetrate Igalamela/Odolu. All our political leaders here are PDP and our people have asked me to tell his Excellency that on November 21, they shall show their appreciation for all the governor has been doing in the constituency.”
Speaking at the rally, the governor assured the people that he will do more for them if elected on November 21.
He enumerated the projects he had executed in the two local government areas to include roads, healthcare facilities among others.
Former governor of the state, Alhaji Ibrahim Idris, said the leaders of Kogi East had made it clear that Wada deserved another term, enjoining the people of the area to turn out en masse and vote for the PDP candidate.
