25 Rivers State Lawmakers Formally Declares APC
Twenty-Five members of the Rivers State House of Assembly, loyal to Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, yesterday formally declared for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This is as the kidnapped member of the House, Hon. Golden Ngozi Chioma, regained his freedom after about one week in captivity.
Speaking during a session, House Leader, Hon. Chidi Lloyd, said they had ceased to be members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), adding that further correspondence to them should bear the APC.
Lloyd said: “The 25 pro-Amaechi lawmakers have asked me to declare our formal defection to All Progressives Congress (APC). Henceforth, 25 of us should be referred to as All Progressives Congress members. We are telling the world today that we are all members of APC.”
Responding to the defection, the Speaker, Hon. Otelemaba Dan-Amachree, requested his colleagues to document their decision.
