Chairman, National Assembly Progressive Media Aides (NAPMAIDES), Prince Oyelude Oladele, says the defection of Senator Stella Oduah representing people of Anambra North Senatorial District will further boost the chances of the party’s candidate in clinching the 2021 governorship election in Anambra.

Oyelude, in a statement issued in Abuja, said Oduah’s defection from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC was record breaking.

The chairman, who congratulated Oduah “for her courageous step which will further reduce the strength of the opposition in the Southeastern states”, noted that her decision would make it easier to bring more PDP members to APC and boost the APC chances in producing the 2021 governor in Anambra State.

The parliamentary media group’s chairman urged Sen. Stella Oduah to use her existing strength to bring more conservative souls to the progressive family.

Prince Oyelude Oladele also commended Governor Mai Mal Buni-led Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), adding that the committee has proved to the world that the APC is for all the six geopolitical zones in Nigeria.
