It has been avalanche of defections from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) since the former Chief of Staff, Rivers State Government House, Chief Emeh Glory Emeh bid APC goodbye and embraced the Governor Nyesom Wike administration and PDP in Rivers State.
The latest defectors are from ward 4 in the Emohua Local Government area where hundreds of APC supporters decamped to the PDP.
Speaking at a courtesy visit to the Port Harcourt residence of Emeh, the leader of the delegation, Pastor Tony Iwedi described their defection to PDP as inspirational, based on the fact that Emeh had, in the past years, been a source of livelihood to a vast majority of the people in the council.
Iwedi, who said their people are proud to be associated with the purposeful administration of Wike, observed that, with the movement of Emeh to the PDP, APC can only be described as dead and buried in the area.
In his response, the commissioner during the administration of Dr. Peter Odili thanked the former APC members for embracing Governor Wike and the PDP in Rivers State, describing the governor as a friendly and God fearing politician.
Emeh informed the new converts that they took a wise decision because in no time, “APC will be totally extinct in Rivers State.”
Emeh also assured the groups that he would take them to Governor Wike once his assignment is concluded.
