Abba Moro, senator representing Benue South district, has claimed that only his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), can redeem Nigeria from its current hardship.
Moro also argued that the country has lost almost everything under the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.
He spoke on Monday at the defection ceremony of some APC stalwarts into the PDP in Vandeikya Local Government Area of Benue State.
Moro stressed that, “only the PDP would redeem Nigeria in 2023.”
Earlier, the state governor, Samuel Ortom, while receiving the defectors and their leaders, assured them of equal opportunities in the PDP as he expressed hope that the party will take over the leadership of the country in 2023 and restore the nation to its lost glory.
Ortom applauded the defectors: Joseph Kyaagba, Joe Akaakar, John Actsu, and Michael Gwaza, who led thousands of their supporters to dump the APC for the PDP.
The governor decried the hardship brought upon Nigerians by the APC-led administration at the center, noting that the party inflicted pains on the citizens such as never experienced since inception of the country.
