Mass Defections Of APC Members In Rotimi Amaechi’s Ward, Ubima


…Says PDP Is Ready To Receive, Accommodate Remnants

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.
