Ahead of the 2019 elections in the country, one of the opposition parties, PDP have accused the ruling party, APC of being responsible for the mass killing around the country.

In Response as to whether the Governor of the state, Okezie Ikpeazu will be defecting to APC, Onuigbo said that, “What is in APC that will attract the Governor? What has the party achieved since three years that it came to power if not mass killings of Nigerians? Ikpeazu cannot dream of going to APC.”
“When PDP was in power, we never heard of Meiyetti ‘Allah but now cows move into Aso Rock. Nigerians said they needed change and the change has brought a bag of rice from N8000 to N20000. But in 2019, we must change the bad change”.
“Abia is not Ekiti. We know their plans to rig the election as they did in Ekiti but we will resist them. It cannot work here “.
Onuigbo who said “Abia remains PDP’s stronghold, predicted victory for the party in 2019.”
Shut up and leave PDP if you have no value to add, Agbaje tells Bode George

Speaking on the clash, media aide to Agbaje, Felix Oboagwina, denied reports that his principal had dumped the opposition party and also accused the leadership of the party in Lagos of alleged plans to “give the dog a bad name and chase it away from the party.”
On the social media posts that Agbaje had left the PDP to join the All Progressives Congress, APC, Oboagwina said they were untrue.

“People should please tell Bode George to shut up and leave PDP if he lacks any value to add to the party, instead of being a dog in the manger hampering the progress of the party in Lagos State.
“He should tell the world where he got the news being spread around.
