Peter Obi’s Campaign Coordinator Defects To PDP In Bayelsa

Peter Obi‘s Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) coordinator in Bayelsa State, Alagoa Morris, has dumped the Labour Party (LP) to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) camp in the state.

Morris confirmed his defection in a statement made available to newsmen on Thursday in Yenagoa ahead of the Bayelsa Governorship Election slated for November 11.

The Environmental Rights Activist said he joined the PDP to support the incumbent governor because he is ‘the best’ among the major contenders.

He noted that Governor Duoye Diri had done so many good things, some of which are not in the public domain, hence his reason to totally support his re-election to continue in office.

I decided to support the incumbent governor because he is the best among the major contenders.

“Looking at the available candidates on the ground for the Nov. 11 election, Diri is the only one who should be supported.

“I was not a member of the Labour Party before they appointed me the state coordinator, and that job had been completed since, so life goes on. I was with Gov. Douye Diri yesterday, and looking at the candidates that are available, I believe he is the one that we need to support.

“This is because when anybody comes in now, what they will tell us is that they meet an empty treasury. Therefore, this one that is already working with development partners and other stakeholders should be allowed to continue.

“Diri has done a lot of things that are not in the public domain. I think he is trying, so we have to support him to continue,” Daily Post quoted Morris as saying.
