Defection of Rivers Lawmakers To APC is Inconsequential – PDP

The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, says the announcement of the formal defection of the members of the State House of Assembly loyal to Governor Chibuike Amaechi to the All Progressives Congress, APC, is belated and of no consequence to the PDP.

The Party in a statement signed by the Special Adviser, Media to the State chairman, Jerry Needam berated the lawmakers for inundating the media with stale news, stressing that their membership of the APC was not a new development.

The PDP recalls that same lawmakers had long ceased to be their members since they were suspended for anti-party activities and while contesting their suspension from the PDP in court went ahead to take part in the APC State-wide membership registration exercise last year which was a clear case of contempt of court.

The party according to the statement has continued to grow bigger and stronger without them ever since, and has never wished to have them back to its fold because they were rather a cog in the party’s wheel of progress.

The announcement, the party insists makes no other sense than to re-assure their paymaster, Amaechi of their continued support in the wake of wind of change and, or impeachment of visionless and lawless State chief executives by state legislators across the country.

“We are the least bothered because we are not looking for liabilities which the rubber stamp lawmakers are.

Our party is on track and has lost nothing because these people had never been part of us. The formal announcement of their defection is inconsequential and most uneventful”, the PDP noted.
