Defections Surge: PDP Gains Momentum as Zibiri Joins from APC

Edo State, Nigeria

As the Edo gubernatorial elections draw near, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) continues to strengthen its position by welcoming prominent politicians from the opposition.

In a significant political shift, Prince Akeem Zibiri, a well-known figure and close associate of Jarret Tenebe, Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has officially defected to the PDP.

This latest defection underscores the increasing momentum of the PDP in Edo State. Zibiri’s move is widely seen as a reaction to the internal disarray within the APC, marked by incessant tussles, bickering, and disputes over the selection of their gubernatorial candidate. The APC’s struggles to maintain unity have driven several notable politicians to seek stability and effective leadership elsewhere.

Prince Akeem Zibiri’s decision also reflects a broader sentiment among politicians and voters alike: a desire for a leadership capable of addressing the numerous challenges facing the state and the nation. Confidence in the PDP’s candidates and their ability to bring about positive change appears to be growing, further enhancing the party’s appeal.

With the election approaching, the defection of such a high-profile figure as Prince Zibiri is a significant boost for the PDP, highlighting their increasing influence and the shifting political landscape in Edo State. As both parties continue their campaigns, the focus remains on who can offer the most promising future for the state’s residents.
