DEFECTION: Wike Says APC Hypocritical, Calls Defectors Hopeless, Shameless
Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has dismissed the All Progressives Congress (APC) as hypocritical for demonising the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and then turning around to poach members of the same party.
He said this at the flag-off of Woji-Aleto-Alesa-Refinery Road and bridge on Tuesday.
Wike said those defecting from PDP after riding on the back of the party to power have proven that they are treacherous and lack conscience.
“People who could not win ordinary election. The party used technicality and went to court and got victory. Now, they say they are leaving the party. Hopeless, shameless human beings. People who have no conscience,” Wike said.
He accused the APC-led government of blackmailing and coercing some PDP governors and members to join the ruling party, reiterating that no amount of blackmailing or intimidation will make him leave the PDP.
“Bring everything you have against me, I will not join you. Rivers state will not join you. Even if it is only Rivers state in this country, we will continue to be Peoples Democratic Party,” he said.
