OrderPaperToday – Senate Minority Leader, Phillip Aduda has dismissed claims that the Labour Party Presidential candidate will upset the chances of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) to win the 2023 presidential elections.

Senator Aduda (PDP, FCT) disclosed this while responding to questions from journalists shortly after taking over from Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe (Abia South), following his (Abaribe) resignation as the Senate Minority Leader.
“Make no mistake about it. I’ve often said that local and grassroots politics is different from the internet and WhatsApp and Social media politics.

You can have a lot of followership on the internet and when you get to the grassroots you’ll realise that it’s not the same,” he said.

Speaking on Peter Obi’s departure from the PDP,  the Federal Capital Territory Senator said: “sometimes when people leave, you’ll find out that the hype about it is not just as it is on the ground.

You might find someone leaving the party and it might just be a few of his friends, associates, and cronies. If Peter Obi has left, we win some, we gain some and we lose some.”
Senator Aduda further hinted at plans to make the opposition party PDP, the majority in the Senate, adding that “this is the season where you have people who are aggrieved from both sides. From all sides of the coin, everybody is aggrieved.
It depends on the party that is more aggrieved. For us, the people in the government in power seems to be more aggrieved, and we will continue to harvest them.”
