The Rivers State Chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the Tuesday melodrama by the PDP in the name of welcoming APC decampees to PDP as merely taking a joke too far by exhuming deadwoods and all sorts of valueless persons and labelling them APC members decamping to the PDP.
The APC made this declaration in a press statement released by the Media Department of the Party in Port Harcourt on Thursday.
The statement described the event as part of a bogus charade and big scam by the PDP to swindle Governor Nyesom Wike of the commonwealth of Rivers people.
“This Ponzi scheme by the PDP is now taking a different turn as the party now exhumes old deadwoods and persons of insignificant political value and staging fake reception ceremonies with taxpayers’ money.
“It may make little sense to talk about receiving Mr. Ogbonna Nwuke who recently announced his resignation from the APC but how can anyone explain lumping several other individuals who either had no link with APC or left our Party 3 to 4 years ago?
“More specifically, Chibudom Nwuche has not been a registered member of the APC as he cannot produce and present such registration evidence to anyone. There is no point mentioning his zero electoral value as the governor and his party know very well about that. For over 3 years now, Chibudom Nwuche has always enjoyed a front seat in PDP events. So, what is really the point the PDP wants to make now?
“It is public knowledge that Chief Stephen Ezekwem, a follower of Magnus Abe, left the APC in 2018 and he has told anyone that cared to listen that he is now a stakeholder of PDP in his local government area.
“Someone like Hon. Emma Deeyah with his bosom friend, Igo Aguma, shamefully left the APC long ago in ignominy after their satanic plot to steal the party structure in Rivers State failed at the Supreme Court.
“The rest in the basket of deplorables that participated in the show of shame tagged reception into PDP are not more than inconsequential subsistence hunters whose only claim and motive in politics is their alimentary canal. They are mere political travellers whose highest objective in life is how to scrounge morsels of edibles from anywhere for their aching stomachs,” the statement outlined.
Concluding, the statement drew the attention of Rivers people and Nigerians to the quality and status of personalities that decamp from the PDP to join the APC.
“How can anyone compare the PDP's empty melodrama with the latest quality individual that recently left the PDP and joined the APC with thousands of his supporters in the person of Hon. Chisom Dike who is presently representing Eleme, Tai & Oyigbo Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives of the Federal Republic of Nigeria? Those they claim are joining PDP are expired former this and that with no real value of any kind. These are wretched political journeymen with no followers," it said.
