The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been hit with defection again as six of its chieftains in Oyibo local government area of Rivers state joined the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The new defectors, according to a report, include Adolphus Nweke, Onyema Ihenna, Ibekwe Okere, among others.
Though the APC in Rivers state is also neck-deep in intra-party crisis, the defectors said the PDP is no better party.
They hoped the APC structure in Rivers state would become stronger after the crisis period.
The new APC members were quoted to have said:
“We would rather be active members of the APC and partake in the dividend of the work, than answer big name and die in hardship.”
Leakblast.com gathers that the defectors were received on Wednesday, December 23, by the party leader in Oyibo, Gift Okere, and caretaker committee chairman, Chamberlain Okorie.
Claiming that the PDP has crashed in the area following the defection of key executives to the APC, he urged the new members to work for APC’s victory in the next elections.
