The party has however suffered a setback as the National Coordinator for Jonathan, support group, Jonathan Shall Lead Again, has defected to the APC.
According to reports, Curtis Ugbo, known as the peoples speaker, has defected to the APC with thousands of his supporters.
He cited the insincerity on the part of the leaders of the Edo State chapter of the PDP as a major reason for his decision.
“As you are aware I am the BOT Chairman and grant patron of the Jonathan Shall Lead Again Movement with structure across the country we have been supporting Jonathan’s re-election since 2012 but here in Edo state, I discovered that the PDP leaders have not been carrying people along. The PDP in Edo state is in the wrong hands, the party never shows any appreciation. What will the PDP leaders attract or do for the people with their billions? What kind of leaders are they?" he said.
He added that he thought that General Buhari would win the upcoming elections and that he has his full support.
