PDP Reps From River State Dumps Party for APC
One of the lawmakers from Rivers State which is representing Tai/Eleme/Oyigbo Federal Constituency in Rivers State, Chisom Dike, on Thursday, defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the ruling All Progressives Congress, just some minutes after Fani Kayode dumped the party too.
The Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, read Dike’s letter to the House during plenary, he said the lawmaker cited, among other things, the division in the PDP as the reason for his defection.
In the letter Dike described Gbajabiamila’s leadership as accommodating, and that the APC was the right party for him.
The lawmaker said, “I am finally home.”
There was, however, a mild drama when the Speaker asked the House Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu, whether he had anything to say about the latest defection.
The House Leader, Ado Doguwa, quickly interjected and said, “we want to put you on notice that by Thursday next week there will be two more defections.”
