Atiku Campaign Spokesperson, Dino Melaye and other bigwigs of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are gearing up to storm Ekiti State to receive about 10,000 defecting members of the Social Democratic Party, SDP ahead the 2023 general election.

Other bigwigs expected at the Tuesday event are the National Chairman of the PDP, Iyiorcha Ayu; vice presidential candidate of the PDP and Delta state Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa; Senate Minority Leader, Philip Aduda; Raymond Dokpesi and Henrich B. Akomolafe, a member of the House of Representatives.

In a statement by the Organisers of the event, The Ekiti Progressives, they said they would also unveil a platform to mobilise support for the Atiku-Okowa Presidency.

The statement read in part, “members believe the choice of Atiku and Okowa for the 2023 presidency would help in repositioning the country to a better and more functional economy among the comity of nations.”

“The PDP in Ekiti state has continued to canvass for support for all elective positions for the 2023 elections in Nigeria, and this would be an added achievement with the decamping of 10,000 strong SDP candidates to the party.”
