A former member of the House of Representatives and member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ogbeide Ifaluyi-Isibor, has declared support for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, over his PDP counterpart, Atiku Abubakar.

Ifaluyi-Isibor said though he supported former Vice-President Atiku in the 2019 presidential election, he has switched to support Obi for the 2023 presidency because of his track records.

Ifaluyi-Isibor, also the Director of Mobilisation, Nigeria Diaspora Youth Coalition for Peter Obi, disclosed this on Monday while fielding questions on a Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily program which was monitored by Africa Daily News, New York.

He stated that he was not blinded by party loyalty, noting that he did not need to belong to the Labour Party to support its presidential candidate.

‘I’m a member of the PDP and glad to be a member of the PDP but I am one that is very ‘Obidient’.

‘We cannot continuously pretend that all is well and because I am a member of the PDP, then whoever the PDP candidate is, then you must support. That is not how democracy plays out in other developed economies. There are members of the Democrat Party who support Republican candidates and vice-versa. So, it is about the capacity, the competence, and the capability of the individuals’, he said.

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has sent out a warning to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as well as other chieftains to resolve the crisis and placate Governor Wike ahead of the commencement of campaigns.

He lamented that the party leadership has so far failed to fully push out its internal mechanism to resolve the crisis rocking the party.

He further submitted that ignoring the Rivers governor and his allies posed a great danger for the party.

Ortom made this known while speaking during the party stakeholders meeting held at the new banquet hall of the Government House, Makurdi, on Monday.
