The Coordinator of Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign in Oyo State and former Deputy Governor of the state, Hazeem Gbolarumi, yesterday, said that the G-5 and Integrity Group in one million places could not stop the victory of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Gbolarumi, who spoke with The Guardian in Ibadan, the state capital, said members of the G-5 and Integrity Group were fighting for a selfish agenda.
The former deputy governor, who also spoke on the chance of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, said: ‘’Obi goes nowhere. He has no structure. The youths following him have no Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs). You will see that at the end of the day, Obi is going nowhere.’’
IN another development, scores of Accord Party (AP), New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members in Oluyole area of Oyo State, at the weekend, defected to the Social Democratic Party (SDP) ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The defectors were received by the state chairman of the SDP, Michael Ogunlade, at the meeting of the party held at Moslem High School, Odinjo, in Oluyole area of the state.
