BreakingNews 11/10/14 - More Facts Emerge on Why Obi Left APGA

[ Masterweb Reports ] - Following mixed reactions on the joining of the PDP by the former Governor of Anambra, Mr. Peter Obi, more facts have emerged on what
informed his decision.

Speaking to journalists during an interactive session with Igbo group  in Lagos State, Obi said  "There is nothing wrong with APGA and my joining the PDP has nothing to do with APGA. I enjoy cordial relationship with  Chief  Willie Obiano and the Government is doing well.   I  will continue to support him in building a better Anambra State  for the good of the children of the State."

Asked the main reason why he left APGA, he said that it was because of his commitment to be strongly involved in President Jonathan's re-election bid saying: "Mr. President is doing very well. He has a lot of policies in place that will transform the country if re-elected. We shall support him fully for the benefit of the country."

The delegation was led by Barr. Olisa Metuh, who said that never in the history of the PDP was such a delegation sent to persuade anybody to join the PDP, but that the a South-East leaders had to do it in Obi's case because of his past performance and the value he would  bring to the party.

It will be recalled that Governor Olusegun  Mimiko of Ondo State recently joined the PDP saying it was not because of Ondo State or  Labour Party, but that it would offer him the opportunity to support the President more strongly.  Obi who also cited the same reason said that he discussed the matter with  Mimiko  severally.
