PDP chieftain, Prince Lawrence Ezeh has come out to say that the Chairman of the Zonal Executive Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Dan Orbin is the reason why APC is weakened in Edo State.

Prince Lawrence recently came out to say that Dan Orbin is the best man for the job and he would make sure PDP takes over Nigeria leadership in 2023.

According to him, with Chief Orbih in charge, there is capable leadership in PDP and he is certain that the growth will continue for a long time.

He added that PDP is matching towards 2023 and he expects victories galore when the time comes.

His words, “Chief Orbih’s capable leadership of the PDP in Edo State led to the weakening and eventual splitting of the opposition APC in the state, and I am certain that with his leadership PDP will grow, not just in the South-South zone, but across the country as a result of Orbih’s fighting spirit,”

“At my assumption of office as the zonal chairman of our party in the South-South, I can say that my zone has become the first zone under the present situation to have all the states in the zone as PDP states.

“There is no zone that can take that credit; so to a large extent, my coming on board has further strengthened the party not just in the zone, but the country at large, and this is very key as we match towards 2023.”

The All Progressives Congress (APC) is a political party in Nigeria, formed on 6 February 2013 in anticipation of the 2015 elections. APC candidate Muhammadu Buhari won the presidential election by almost 2.6 million votes. Incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan conceded defeat on 31 March. This was the first time in Nigeria’s political history that an opposition political party unseated a governing party in a general election and one in which power transferred peacefully from one political party to another. In addition, the APC won the majority of seats in the Senate and the House of Representatives in the 2015 elections, though it fell shy of winning a super-majority to override the ability of the opposition People’s Democratic Party to block legislation.

Formed in February 2013, the party is the result of a merger of Nigeria’s three biggest opposition parties – the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), a faction of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and the new PDP – a faction of then ruling People’s Democratic Party. The resolution was signed by Tom Ikimi, who represented the ACN; Senator Annie Okonkwo on behalf of the APGA; Ibrahim Shekarau, the Chairman of ANPP’s Merger Committee; and Garba Shehu, the Chairman of CPC’s Merger Committee. Ironically, less than 2 years before the party’s historic victory in the 2015 elections, Messrs. Annie Okonkwo, Tom Ikimi and Ibrahim Shekarau resigned from the party and joined the PDP.

Prior to the formation of the APC and its victory in the 2015 elections, Muhammadu Buhari had previously contested (and subsequently lost) the Nigerian presidential elections of 2003 and 2007 as the presidential nominee of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) and the 2011 Nigerian presidential election as the presidential nominee of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC).
