Peter Obi’s Bayelsa campaign coordinator decamps to PDP

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

The Environmental Rights Activist announced his defection to the PDP on Thursday, August 31 in Yenagoa ahead of the Bayelsa Governorship Election slated for November 11.

Speaking on his reason for changing camps, Morris noted that Governor Duoye Diri had done so many good things some of which are not in the public domain, so he has chosen to totally support 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”.
