South West PDP Supporters Abandon Party, Join Mega Party

The South West supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), under the leadership of the sacked National Chairman of the party, Ali Modu Sheriff have confirmed their decision to leave the party.

Pointing accusing fingers at the Ahmed Makarfi-led caretaker committee of the PDP for not being magnanimous in victory, they unanimously voted for decamping from the PDP to the Mega Party of Nigeria (MPN).

Speaking on behalf of the breakaway supporters, the former chairman of PDP in Ondo State, Ebenezer Alabi, alongside the Director General (DG), Omo Ilu Foundation (the mobilisation arm of Buruji Kashamu political organisation), Leke Adekoya, in a statement in Ibadan at the MPN office argued that the Makarfi group displayed traits of arrogance after the decision of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

According Alabi, “The purpose of the struggle was to stamp out impunity in the party.

“We thought the Supreme Court judgment would teach us a good lesson, but it was not so.

“The PDP has now been taken over by vampires that we cannot co-habit with.

“We, who believe in the leadership of Sheriff, have therefore decided to move en masse to join forces with the Mega Party of Nigeria. It was registered in 2010 as Mega Progressives Party but we are transforming it to the new name to show the strength.

“The name will change officially next week.”
