Mallam Balarable Saidu, campaign Director of the governorship candidate of Edo state Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Pastor Osagie Ize-iyamu, has dumped the party.
Saidu led hundreds of other supporters to decamp to the ruling party at the flag-off of the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship campaign at Auchi.
Explaining why he decided to pitch his tent with the APC, Saidu said he spent 10 years in PDP without any meaningful development in the senatorial zone.
The former PDP chieftain said he and his supporters’ children and generations unborn will not forgive them if they failed to work with Comrade Adams Oshiomhole who worked assiduously to improve infrastructure like roads, schools and healthcare.
His words: My brothers and sisters from Edo North, I hereby stand before you people with over two thousand persons from the dying PDP to join our Comrade Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, so that more development can come our way.
“Today, Edo North is like small London. With our son, Hon. Philip Shaibu (deputy governorship candidate), joining Godwin Obaseki, heaven is our limit
