More Trouble for APC as 5000 members decamped to PDP

The members are the same people who
left the PDP for APC in January 2018
- They cited confusion, lack of focus and no
desirable agenda for the Ijaw people as the
reason for decamping back to PDP
About 5000 members including 59
chieftains of the All Progressive
Congress (APC) from the eight local
government councils of Bayelsa State
have on Friday, April 27, defected back
to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
barely four months after leaving.
The Sun reports that the 5000 members
were received by Governor Henry
Seriake Dickson and leaders of the PDP
in Yenagoa.
The returnees said they were deceived
to join the APC but they have since
realised that the party lacks focus and
no desirable agenda for the Ijaw people.
Dickson, while addressing the returnees,
said: “The PDP government in Bayelsa
state under my watch has placed the
state on the path of peace, prosperity,
and development. Bayelsans are happy
with the party. The PDP is the only party
that has a developmental agenda for the
Ijaw people.
“What we do in PDP is to strategise to
win elections and after elections we work
for the development of our people
because we are politics to serve our
people. The other party comes to kill our
people because they lack vision; they
have no agenda for our people expect to
destroy what our founding fathers have
built and what our government is
consolidating. Any person who is
deceived to contest election in 2019 on
another platform other than the PDP
will still lose because only PDP can win
election in Bayelsa state”
The chairman of Bayelsa state chapter of
the PDP, Honourable Moses Cloepas,
while addressing the crowd also said
only the party has the capacity to defeat
federal might as it did in 2016 when
Governor Henry Seriake Dickson was
re-elected against all odds.
The members were led by a top
grassroots politician Chief Morris
Idamikposi Igaki on Friday, January 18.
According to the defectors, they
participated in the campaign and
politics of Governor Seriake Dickson but
he abandoned them. They described his
administration as dictatorial,
oppressive and selfish.
