Thousands of APC members join PDP in Rivers


Thousands of members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State yesterday joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

They were received in Opobo town by Rivers State PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah.

The defection came a few days after over 400 APC members defected to the PDP at the Government Secondary School, Nkpolu Oroworukwu, in Port Harcourt City Local Government Area.

In his remarks, Obuah commended Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike for matching his words with action on the Ogoni/Andoni/Opobo Unity Road.

He called on the people of Opobo Kingdom to show appreciation to Governor Wike for making the road project a reality, adding that the completion of the road will boost socio-economic activities in the town.

“How else can a Governor demonstrate unconditional love and affection for a people than to give them something they have yearned for centuries, a link into the world outside to give them a new lease of life?” he quipped.

He urged the people to reciprocate the gesture by giving their maximum support to the administration of Governor Wike.

Obuah further appealed to them of to take advantage of the ongoing Permanent Voters Registration exercise to get registered and support the PDP during the election.

Among those who decamped were Ngerebia Emmanuel, APC State officio member and President, Nkoro Solidarity Forum; Ibim Clement Ogolo, APC Youth Leader in Opobo/Nkoro from Ward 3 in Opobo, same ward with the APC 2015 governorship candidate, Dakuku Peterside; Dimeari Bellgam, APC Ward 4 Coordinator and Effort Dappa, APC Ward 8 Coordinator.
