“It is normal for people to change parties, but the question is, what is the impact? When Obanikoro left, did anybody go with him?
“When Salvador left, our former Chairman, he left alone. The people are still in the party. Chief Bode George is here, so are all the great party men.
“So, we are winning in 2019. No doubt about that. The people are tired and they want a change in PDP,” he said.
