Hundreds defect to PDP from APC in Rivers

About 800 people who claimed to be members the APC in Asari-Torlu Local Government Area of Rivers State, yesterday, defected to PDP.

The spokesman of the defectors and a former Commissioner in the State, Mr Ikalama Awongo, said they were leaving APC because the party had failed to deliver on its change mantra promises.

Awongo, who served in the administration of former Governor Chibuike Amaechi, said the leadership of APC had disappointed them by not carrying them along.

He said they were moved by the developmental strides of Governor Nyesom Wike which encouraged most of them to move to PDP.
