Rivers Re-run: GDI structure in KELGA collapses , as more defection hits the PDP

It was a black day for the PDP yesterday as three former councilors in Ikwerre LGA decamped to APC in an open event held at the IYM international secretariat, Isiokpo.


Speaking on behalf of the decampees, Hon Anselm Eziwho, a former councilors who represented Omanwa in the Kelga Legislative Council, lambasted the Rivers PDP for their double standard posture and trappings of deceit.

In his words ; "me and my other honourables decided to dump PDP today because we discovered their deceitfulness when they told us to now work against the party at the center because they are now displaced by the APC at the center, forgetting that they were only able to convince us to dump ANPP and work with PDP during the reign of Jonathan after telling us that Rivers state cannot afford to work against the party at the center, and secondly because the same government has appointed our Ikwerre son as a junior Minister. How then can the same party ask us to now work against the APC government at the center, who have appointed our Ikwerre son, Rt.Hon.Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, as a super-double Minister? It is only an irrational man that can be swindled with such level of deceit. "

 The other decampees are Hon Ezebuchi Wosu who represented Ward 1 Isiokpo in the Kelga legislative Assembly and Hon Chidi Opara of Omerelu community in Ikwerre LGA. They both joined Hon Anselem to shout the 'change' slogan and receive the customised APC broom from the Party Leaders as a ritual signaling their official welcome and acceptance into the broom revolution of the change resurgimento of the party.

 This development has certainly come as a fatal fall and surely catastrophic to the continued existence of PDP as a force in Ikwerre LGA,  as the Trio who swore to pull over their large followers and machinery across the LGA , are as it were, the pillars, fulcrum and pioneering generals of the notorious Grassroot Development Initiative (GDI) - the political structure of the embattled governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezebunwo Wike...whose election has been nullified by the courts, to be reconducted by INEC soonest.

Inducting the Decampees, shortly after, is no other person than Glory Emeh - an APC chieftain in Emohua LGA, who also decamped from PDP to APC in the recent past. In his address to the decampees , he encouraged them not to be scared or reluctant to feel among and give their best contributions to the party, as he hasn't seen before, such level love, fair play and togetherness as he has seen in APC since joining little less than a year ago. He further assured them of a level playing ground and adequate space for them all.

Top dignitaries at the event, which is also designed to inaugurate the various LGA election committees, include : Chief Appollos Amadi ( Chairman, Kelga Election Council), Hon. Ezemonye Amadi (Vice Chairman, Kelga Election  Council), Barr. Prince Amadi (Secretary Kelga Election Council), Hon Ben Odigwe (LGA Party Chairman) Hon Glory Emeh ( former Commissioner from Emohua LGA), Elder Chidi Wihioka (APC leader, Kelga and APC House of Representatives Candidate for Ikwerre/Emohua Federal Constituency), Hon Azubike Wanjoku (APC House of Assembly Candidate, representing Ikwerre LGA), Chief Humphrey Walker ( Chairman, Isiokpo APC Leadership Forum), Hon Kerian Wobodo (Former Chairman, Ikwerre LGA), Hon Chikweri Woke (Former Vice Chairman, Ikwerre LGA), Hon Chibuike Ikenga ( Emeritus CTC Chairman, Ikwerre LGA), Hon Chukwuma Orchi, Hon Elendu Dike, Hon Sunny Eziwho, Hon Igochukwu Dimm, Chief Franklin Nlemogu, Dr Hillary Wordu, Ambassador Anosike Orduwa.
