Former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State, Akogun Oyedepo, has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) would defeat the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019.
Oyedepo, who recently led majority of PDP members to APC, said in a statement that over 85 per cent of PDP members followed him to APC.
“If you add our 85 per cent with the people in APC before we came in, the party is richer now and ready to chase away PDP in Kwara,” he said.
According to him, the splinter group that remains in PDP had no electoral value, and APC was the party to beat in any election in Kwara.
He noted that of the 31 member-executive, only four remained with PDP; the rest followed him to APC.
The former PDP chairman added that over 85 per cent of the local government and ward executive followed him to APC. No less than 15 other political parties were ready to work with APC to wrestle power form PDP and Saraki, he added.
“I can boast of 15 political parties that are with us. As far as that is concerned, we have not less than 15 that are working with us, including KOWA, Labour Party, PPN and some others.”
