Mass Defections Hit APC In Rivers State…PDP Says It Is Ready To Receive, Accommodate Remnants

Listen to article

Excited over the continued mass defections of leaders and supporters of

the All Progressives Congress, APC, to the populous and ruling Peoples

Democratic Party, PDP, in the State, the Chairman of the State chapter of

the Party, Bro. Felix Obuah says it is an action taken in demonstration of

their disappointment and frustration over the failure of the APC to

provide a better leadership alternative.
The PDP Chairman, particularly reacting to the latest of this development,

where in Ubima community in Ikwerre Local Government Area, the home of the

former Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, hundreds of members of the APC, including

their leaders and his close allies, dumped the party for the PDP, said it

is not a surprise that the APC suffered such fate as the party and its

Abuja based leaders do not have the structure, grassroots support, as well

as genuine commitment and purposeful programmes to carter for the needs of

the people.
Bro. Obuah, while welcoming the new members from the APC to the PDP,

congratulated them on their realization and bold step taken in spite of

the intimidation and inducement by the former Governor, Rotimi Amaechi and

other unpopular leaders of the APC, who are running from pillar to post in

Abuja begging to be appointed or imposed on the people through fraudulent

elections in the State.
He reiterated that the PDP umbrella is large enough to accommodate both

regular and returning members of the party, assuring all of equal

opportunity and treatment as a responsible and well-meaning party founded

on equity, justice and fair play.
Bro Obuah further explained that with the current trend of defections in

the State, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, former Governor of Rivers State and

Minister of Transportation, would be left with the carcass of the party,

appealing to the remnants to make hay while the sun shines so as to be

part of the various development programmes and initiatives of the Wike-

led government in the State.
He also urged the former Governor and Minister of Transportation, Amaechi

and his allies to stomach their pride and stop their uncovered calumnious

plots against the PDP government in the State, admit their failure and

defeat and to take steps in joining the performing Governor Nyesom Wike in

giving the people of the State a new lease of life.

PDP, he said, is willing to forgive and re-admit any genuinely repentant

APC leader and members who are ready to help build a better Rivers State,

assuring that in the coming days, more of the leftover APC members would

join the PDP fold in the State.
