The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in ward 16, Obio/Akpor LGA of Rivers State, Achinike Owhomka, led other APC stalwarts to join the Social Democratic Party (SDP).
On Saturday, November 19, they declared for SDP at Freedom House, Senator Magnus Abe’s political office in GRA, Port Harcourt, and were received and capped by the gubernatorial candidate of the party, Senator Magnus Ngei Abe.
The defectors give reason
They said having realized that Senator Magnus Abe is the best gubernatorial candidate in the race, it is only fair that all Rivers people should join hands with him to win the 2023 election in the state and offer good governance for the benefit of all, Rivers Mirror reported.
Senator Abe said they would be given equal opportunity in the party and be allowed to demonstrate their genius as SDP marches inexorably to the Brick House in 2023.
