Some members of Kogi state’s arm of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) granted a press conference where they spoke about the outcome of the presidential election and the upcoming gubernatorial primaries in their state.
The Kogi PDP members said, “we are using this moment to call on the elders of the PDP like Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to call those who are trying to change Kogi delegates’ list to order. Changing names of delegates was what made Peter Gregory Obi leave our party. If Peter Gregory Obi was still in our party, as Atiku Abubakar’s running mate or not, we would not have lost the south east during the presidential election because it was our natural catchment area.”
Speaking further, Kogi state’s PDP members said, “the delegates of Anambra state’s PDP were changed by some people and If obi had waited he won’t have had a single vote because new people replaced the old delegates.”
Lastly, the Kogi PDP members said, “it was obvious that nobody would have rigged us out of the presidential election if Peter Gregory Obi had stayed.”
