A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Raymond Dokpesi, has disclosed that some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are planning to deflect to the PDP.

He said this in a letter dated January 21, and addressed to the Delta state Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa who also doubles as the running mate to Atiku Abubakar of the PDP.

According to the founder of Daar Communications the APC members will officially join the PDP on Tuesday, January 24, during the party’s rally in Delta state.

He noted that the APC members were formerly in the Muhammadu Buhari/Yemi Osinbajo Nationwide Support Group.

Dokpesi is of the view that members of the group are over seven million and that the group is very strong in the south-south geopolitical zone.

“We have done due diligence on them and found that they actually have over 7,000,000 (Seven Million) registered voters in their fold. They are very strong in the South-South region," the letter read in part.
