Former PDP presidential aspirant dumps party for APC
A former presidential aspirant of thw People’s Democratic Party, Stanley Osifo, Thursday night dumped the party to join the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Osifo, said at a press conference in Lagos that he is leaving the PDP with, at least, “10 million” of his followers
“I believe if not for the coincidence in the postponement of the Presidential Elections from February 16 to 23, the announcement had been planned for this day (Thursday 21, 2019). I strongly believe in the decision taken and the whole world should know,” said Osifo.
“Also, I want to state clearly that, my supporters and I are giving our unflinching support to the re-election of the incumbent president, Muhammadu Buhari, and all other governors, senators, from top to bottom under the platform of the APC,” he added.
Osifo was largely regarded as a sponsored spy within the party, a claim he denied vigorously.
He obtained the party’s nomination and intention forms for N10 million and N2 million respectively but was denied a space in the party’s primaries in October. In an attempt to protest his grievance the presidential hopeful threaten lawsuit.
Osifo decamped to APC the same day 12 presidential candidates endorsed Buhari’s re-election bid.
