Rivers: Defection Tussle Between APC and PDP


Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has debunked claims made by the All Progressives Party, APC in the state that most of his allies have left the party to APC, stressing that defection has become a normal routine in Nigeria politics and it no longer stairs any surprise.

In an interview with the PDP State Publicity Secretary, Sydney Tambari, he said that the APC was disturbed greatly because of its member’s defection to the PDP. He revealed that some of those local governments that have witnessed minor defections to APC, still have staunch PDP members piloting the affairs of the state there “unlike the APC that has been in a state of comatose ever since Hon. Chidi Lloyd left the party for PDP”.

While maintaining that the governor is not disturbed because PDP still has strongholds in virtually all the local governments, revealed that they have seen far more defections from APC and other parties to PDP in recent times.

Refuting the allegation, the Rotimi Amaechi led faction of the APC spokesperson, Ogbonna Nwuke during the burial of former Justice of the Supreme Court, Adolphus Karibi-Whyte noted that the Ameachi led administration was better compared to the Wike led government.
