He said that he ditched the NNPP for the PDP alongside large numbers of his supporters, adding that the party lacked structure to win elections in the country.






He said that his decision to switched camp also stemmed from internal crisis, flagrant disregard of the rule of law and lack of unity among members due to poor leadership of the party.





According to him, the NNPP’s leadership poorly managed its affairs resulting to emergence of various factions.





He, therefore, convassed votes for the PDP and its candidates at all levels in the forthcoming election.
