Governorship candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State, including Enugu State are soliciting support from the ‘Obidients’ supporters of the Labour Party (LP).
The Deputy Senate President and APC gubernatorial candidate, Omo-Agege over the weekend stormed Asaba and Oshimili South LGA where Peter Obi scored the highest number of votes of over 40,000, to woo supporters ahead of Saturday’s election.
Omo-Agege, along with his supporters and loyalists met with Obi supporters and earnestly begged them to convert their votes in LP to APC.
He said: “We have succeeded in the first leg during the presidential election. Let us come together and chase away our common enemy. Let us together and reject the afflictions of PDP. Vote me for pensioners to be paid their gratuities, affordable school fees will be paid at universities and constant electricity will be possible.
“Convert your votes in the Labour Party to Omo-Agege. I know what Obidients want; I will run a participatory government with you. Finish the good work you have started. The wounded lion has started to run helter-skelter and begging for votes. Don’t listen to them.”
However, the PDP candidate, Sheriff Oborevwori, rubbished the words of Omo-Agege saying APC is a scam and will never keep to its words.
Sheriff urged ‘Obidients’ not to listen to APC who will use and dump them later, instead, they should vote for PDP.
Similarly, in Enugu State, a billboard of PDP candidate, Peter Mbah was sighted soliciting LP supporters to vote for him in the election.
He further warned the youths against voting for an incompetent leader due to their anger over bad leadership and challenges in the country
