Edo, Benin –
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has made a move to woo former All Progressives Congress (APC)’s presidential aspirant Nicholas Felix, to join the party.
According toThe Punch , the largest opposition party will promise Felix that he would get the Edo state governorship ticket ahead of the 2023 election in the state.

APC’s youngest presidential aspirant stepped down for Osinbajo
During the APC presidential primaries, Felix threw his weight behind vice-president Yemi Osinbajo by stepping down for him.
The youngest aspirant, before stepping down, described Osinbajo as the “best man for the job,” saying he believed Osinbajo would turn the country around positively.
He later confirmed that he received an “offer” from some party chieftain, who urged him to consider taking over from Godwin Obaseki when he will leave office in 2022.
I will remain in APC – Felix
He, however, stated that “it is not something I am considering for now. I will definitely remain in APC
,” he said.
Reacting to the development, the PDP’s spokesperson said, Debo Ologunagba, said he had not been briefed about it.
The national publicity secretary of the APC, Felix Morka, expressed his reservation about it.
“I don’t respond to rumours. Let the man who plans to defect confirm or debunk it.” Morka said.
