The spokesperson of the Taraba state chapter of Labour Party (LP) presidential campaign council, Mr. Kefas Sule, Wednesday, collapsed his structure into the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to support the governorship candidate of the party, Agbu Kefas.
Sule while briefing journalists in Jalingo, the state capital, said his stint in the Obidient movement was only for the presidential election.
Sule, who in 2019 contested to be governor of the state and served as chairman of the governorship candidate forum, also led other members of the group to pledge their loyalty to the PDP and its governorship candidate.
“For those who are familiar with the election circle of 2019, you may recall that we had an umbrella organisation known as the ‘2019 Taraba State Governorship Candidates Forum’ of which I was the Chairman.
“We have kept the light of the forum alive because of our abiding interest in the progress and development of our State.
“Today, in addition to the chairmanship of the Forum, I also address you as one of the pillars of the Labour Party in Taraba State, having been an unapologetic member and leader in the OBEDIENT MOVEMENT.
“You may also wish to note that I served as the Director of Media and Publicity of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council in the current campaign circle.
“The Presidential election has been conducted and what is before us now is the state elections coming up on Saturday.
“Myself and some of the former governorship candidates (not all of us are here because many travelled out of town, while others are still on the way coming) are here to speak on who we think deserves to be the next governor of the State,” he said.
