The All Progressive Congress APC has stated that Mr Anthony Ndanenu, a chieftain of All Progressives Congress, says the Peoples Democratic Party is loosing its popularity in Delta, following the result of Saturday’s Isoko South I by-election.
This was disclosed by Mr Anthony Ndanenu , an APC chieftain, while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Sunday, adding that the PDP’s marginal victory at the election had further confirmed that the APC was gaining ground in the state.
According to him, “It was only feather weight politicians, and a few apologists of PDP that will still believe that the APC has no place in Delta.”
He stated that, “The game of politics is a game of numbers which requires absolute control of the majority with high level of political influence.”
He reportedly added that the PDP should instead of celebrating its marginal victory at election, think of ways of advancing its popularity in the state if it must remain relevant in the scheme of things.
He stressed that, “A little above 100 votes at the ward levels and a few thousands in the total Local Government Area election result is not a thing to rejoice about or to be celebrated. This is especially after all manner of inducements and intimidation of opposition party members.”
He continued that, “What the just concluded election shows is that APC has made serious inroad in Delta politics, however, there is need for all hands to be on deck.”
