The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Plateau state is sounding a note of warning to politicians who are fond of changing parties like clothes. One of its chieftains in the state, Alexander Mwolwus, says that his party members defecting to the All Progressives Congress, APC will regret their actions later. He was reacting to the defection of Joshua Dariye, a senator on the platform of PDP to the APC.
Dariye, a one-time governor of the state, alongside the Deputy Speaker, Plateau State House of Assembly, Yusuf Gakdi, and many others defected to the APC at the Rwang Pam Stadium in Jos on Wednesday.
The APC National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, Governor Simon Lalong, some national party leaders and members in the state received Dariye and his group.
Mwolwus, however, said that the PDP would come out of its problems and those who defected would regret their actions.
“What they do not know is that PDP is coming out of its challenges very strong and will soon launch a serious move to unseat the ruling APC in 2019.
“We are leaving nothing to chance to clinch power come 2019, inspite of the negative and destructive activities of the moles in PDP,’’ he said.
Mwolwus said that the PDP was strategising to come back to power to rescue Nigerians from the hardship and pains adding that the departure of Dariye and others would not affect the PDP in the state.
He urged PDP loyalists not to bother about the action of those that defected, but to concentrate on working toward how to regain power in 2019.
