Akpabio’s Defection the Beginning of the End of PDP — APC Chieftain, Eze

Renominated

….Tells OBJ, Atiku & others to beware of Wike

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has described the defection of Senate Minority Leader, Chief Godswill Obot Akpabio, to the ruling party as the beginning of the end of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Eze, an early member of PDP and one of those who dumped the party in 2014 to become foundation members of APC, said in a statement issued on Monday in Port Harcourt that Senator Akapbio deserves commendation “for acting wisely and jumping out of the crashing PDP train before it finally crashes.” “Knowing Akapbio very well, he is a one-man Tsunami and with him in the progressives train, PDP’s end is only a matter of time. What is more, with Akpabio now in APC, Dr. Bukola Saraki, who recently made the mistake of defecting to PDP, can be sure that his Presidency of the Senate is only a matter of weeks,” Eze said.

The former National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New PDP described the present sorry state of PDP under the control of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and Prince Uche Secondus as most unfortunate. He noted that “Wike, who was a mere local government chairman in 1999, has through deft political scheming turned many key Nigerian leaders now in PDP into his disciples.” He wondered “how great leaders like General Olusegun Obasanjo, Atiku Abubakar, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, Saraki, Governor Aminu Tambwual and even Uche Secondus could stoop so low to be taking orders from Governor Wike, whose brand of politics is retrogressive.”

Eze advised these great Nigerians and others in PDP to beware of Wike, “who has mastered the art of pocketing any political leader that comes his way.” He urged all those still remaining in PDP out of the belief that it would be revived to act very fast before Wike ensures the extinct of the party in 2019.

Eze, meanwhile, congratulated Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi on his reappointment as Director General of the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbanjo Presidential Campaign Organisation, expressing confidence that “he will once again mobilise Nigerians to re-elect President Buhari, a divine tool to bring sanity and development to our country.”

The anti-Fakorede group is made up of members and leaders of the ruling party who have hinged their protest on claims that Fakore’s father had defected to the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) and worked against the success of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), at the elections.

The group, which comprises party leaders, elders and women urge lawmakers not to screen or confirm his nomination adding that his nomination  negates the sharing arrangement by the leaders to cover the interest of all the regions and zones of the area.
