BENIN CITY – Over 5000 youths in Oredo Local Government Area who voted for the Peoples Democratic Party in the March 28, 2015 general elections, are set to dump the party for the All Progressive Congress (APC).
The PDP youths who were led by their leaders, Victor Oviawe and David Agbonifo yesterday stormed the office of the APC state youth leader, Comrade Osakpamwan Eriyo where they made their intention to embrace the APC known.
The youths stated that their visit to Comrade Eriyo was in recognition of his office as the APC state youth leader.
They urged Comrade Eriyo to use his good offices to ensure that they were properly absorbed into the All Progressive Congress as bonafide members of the party.
Responding, Comrade Eriyo commended the youths for coming to terms with the reality on ground.
The Edo APC youth leader stated that the APC holds the prospects for youths in the country, adding that the youths should look beyond mere political gains and think how to build a virile nation.
He promised to carry their message to the state governor who is the leader of the APC in Edo State.
He, however, advised the youth to ensure that they have their PVCs.
