PDP is dead in Lagos- Joe Igbokwe

Ahead of 2023 General Election, the Special Adviser to Lagos State Governor on Drainages and Water Resources, Mr Joe Igbokwe, has said that despite the crisis rocking the Ndigbo in the state chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC), the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), can’t take any advantage of winning the poll as it is dead in Lagos.

Igbokwe said this on Thursday while fielding questions from newsmen regarding the ongoing leadership tussle as to who is the authentic apex leader of Ndigbo in Lagos APC between him and Jude Idimogu, a sitting member of the State House of Assembly representing Osodi/Isolo constituency 2.

According to Igbokwe, PDP is dead in Lagos State, saying that most of its notable members had defected to APC, even as he queried: “Who is left in the party?

“Opposition can’t take advantage of the crisis because the opposition party, the PDP does not exist,” Igbokwe said

Igbokwe, who is the immediate past publicity secretary of Lagos APC, argued that crisis was part of democracy, but quickly added that what mattered most was the ability to reconcile.
