Peter Obi’s campaign coordinator in Bayelsa defects to PDP



Bayelsa Coordinator of Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Mr Alagoa Morris, has defected from the Labour Party (LP) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Morris, an Environmental Rights Activist, made the announcement on Thursday in Yenagoa ahead of the Bayelsa Governorship Election slated for Nov. 11.

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

He said, “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,” he said.
