PDP Refutes Claims Of Decampees In Ogoni

The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP says…

claims in some sections of the media that about 1000 of its members in

Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State decamped to the All

Progressives Congress, APC, is a ruse, aimed at misleading the good

people of Ogoni and members of the party.

The party which made the clarification while reacting to media

reports that about 1000 of its members in Khana Local Government Area

of Rivers State moved to the APC said, “all our members in Khana and

other local government areas of Ogoni in Rivers State are intact,

unswerving and are truthful to the PDP in the State’’.

On Wednesday, October 1, 2014 members of the APC were gathered

together at the premises of the Khana Local Government Council and

N10,000 each was distributed to them through the office of the

Secretary to the Rivers State Government by the Chairman, Caretaker

Committee of Khana Local Government Area.

It was absolutely an APC way of celebrating Nigeria’s Independence and

in their usual gesticulation of pillaging Rivers tax payers’ money.

No member of the PDP attended the APC waste of tax payers’ money, as

it was meant for the few APC members who were left behind after the

mass defection of the APC members along with the former Chairman of

Khana Local Government Council, Hon Nwidam to the PDP.

The gathering was to persuade the few APC members left behind

following the defection of the former Khana Council Boss with all his

aides and over 5000 APC members, with entreaties and monetary

enticement of N10, 000 each, that they should not abandon Governor

Rotimi Amaechi and the APC.

The PDP hereby challenges anybody who claims its members defected to

the APC in Bori with proof of their names, wards and PDP membership

card numbers.

We wish to affirm the PDP’s resolve to take over power from Governor

Rotimi Amaechi and the APC in Rivers State and no amount of deception

by the APC would daunt our determination to take total control of

Rivers State from a group of bravadoes.
