Ambassador Dumps PDP For APC In Bayelsa by Phillfree(m): 5:58am On Jan 24, 2015
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in
President Goodluck Jonathan’s home state, Bayelsa,
and former Nigeria’s Ambassador to Venezuela,
Ecuador and Colombia, Senator Felix Oboro, on Friday,
officially dumped the PDP for APC.

He was received by the leader of APC and former
governor of the state, Timipre Sylva; state chairman of
the party, Tiwei Orunimighe, and BoT member, Perez
Peretu, among other party stalwarts at a ceremony in
Yenagoa.

Oboro, a founding member of PDP, was also the
Secretary to the State Government (SSG) in the
administration of the first civilian governor of the state,
Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, under which Jonathan
served as deputy governor.

Giving reasons for his defection to APC, Oboro accused
Jonathan of destroying internal democracy in PDP.

“Since Dr. Jonathan became President and leader of
PDP nationwide, there has never been any genuine
congress in any part of the PDP states to elect
candidates to represent the party in any election,” he
said.

He described the Jonathan-led Federal Government as
inept, stressing that it had enthroned “corruption,
insecurity and economic downturn” in Nigeria.

He said: “Under President Jonathan, even a simple
thing like internal democracy in his party has been
destroyed because he ascended the governorship
position through unholy harmonisation and not
democracy.

“As for corruption, insecurity and economic downturn,
Jonathan’s six years as President is now the cause of
these problems the country is talking about.”

He said APC presidential candidate, General
Muhammadu Buhari, has over 90 per cent chances
more than the President across the states in next
month’s elections, stressing that Nigerians see in
Buhari a disciplined leader who would fix the nation’s
problems.

“Our people must join the mainstream and we should
not allow our state to be ostracised. Dr. Jonathan has
no regard for Ijaw people. He has not shown any pride
of being an Ijaw man. The little dividend of democracy
he has brought to the state is for his community,
Otuoke”, said Oboro, who thanked the leaders and
members of APC for accepting him.

In his remarks, Sylva berated the PDP-controlled
Federal Government for its failure to provide stable
power supply and other social amenities it promised
Nigerians, adding that “there is poverty and insecurity
everywhere.”

He said Buhari was in the presidential race “to give
service, fix and clean up the country for us” if elected
on February 14.

The former governor described Oboro as “a major
pillar of PDP,” pointing out that with his defection to
APC, the ruling party “has been unhinged and it is
going to collapse.”

Receiving Oboro into the party, the state chairman,
Tiwei Orunimighe, who handed him a broom, the
party’s symbol, expressed the hope that he would bring
his wealth of political experience to bear on the party.

Since you don't consider yourself jobless looking at the amount of time you spend online making comments in favour of the APC, it won't be far from the truth to conclude that you've been employed by them.

The way you comment in their favour on every thread shows that your livelihood depends on it.

PDP is paying the price for not aggressively reconciling members.

Which was supposed to be Chairman Muazu's mandate...after all he was appointed chair because Alh Tukur was a divisive figure in the party.

I won't be surprised if PDP does not do as well as expected this year....and if they lose..it would be their fault.

You PDP members better worry. That is how your party lost the governorship of Nassarawa in 2011 because of division.

Your current chair was appointed to reconcile warring factions. Looks like it is not working....and it may come back to haunt you in the election.

If PDP loses...it would be because they did not try hard enough to comfort aggrieved members.

I was with the campaign manager of a gubernatorial aspirant (LABOUR PARTY), who was also once a governor under PDP. He told me that his boss urged them to go and vote massively for Buhari come Feb14.
When I asked him why, he said Jonathan under his regime has broken PDP all for the sake of second time. That his boss will rejoin PDP if Jonathan lose out come Feb14
