Chief Eze Chukwuemeka a chieftain of the APC in Rivers State yesterday criticized the reception organized by PDP leadership in Rivers State to welcome the former APC Chairman in Rivers State.
He stated thus : “In his raunchy custom of reckless spending and wastage of public funds, Governor Nyesom Wike, organized a multi-million naira jumbo reception rally to welcome Dr. Ibiamu Davies Ikanya, erstwhile Chairman, APC, Rivers and his clownish compadre, Igo Aguma, into the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), after the duo, alongside others, successfully executed the artfully contrived scheme for which they were hired by the Governor, to help his 2019 re-election bid, by stirring-up and sustaining crisis in the Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress. ”
Continuing he said :
“For conscious political watchers, it was a home coming rather than a defection rally, as the fair weather politicians and pretentious party men have always been with Gov. Wike.”
Reacting further to the event, the All Progressives Congress and erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party, (nPDP), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, said the judgement handed down by the Supreme Court of Nigeria which made nonsense their claims and exposed their clandestine gimmicks against the APC, led to their formal exit from the Progressives party thus, reintegrating them into the People’s Democratic Party was the only alternative left to help their status as political nomads.
He assertted with emphasis saying : “Their ploy with Wike was to usurp power and take over the affairs of the APC but their scheme met its waterloo.”
In a statement made available to media houses in Port Harcourt, Chief Eze said: ” the multi-million naira reception was organized as a response to the gale of defection that recently rocked the People’s Democratic Party in Rivers State, where dozens of political heavyweights, including former Commissioners, Special Assistants, Board Members and close allies of Gov. Wike, alongside their supporters, left the licking umbrella party to pitch their tent with the All Progressives Congress.”
Describing the mammoth event as laughable and of no effect, the party chief said one would have loved to see Ikanya, Aguma and others, quietly take a stroll back to their base -PDP, than for Wike to waste the huge sum he expended to put the jamboree in place to receive people who are already members, and have been working with and for the People’s Democratic Party while pretending to have a business with the All Progressives Congress.
The party Chief said Aguma, Ikanya, Abe and others have always constituted themselves as moles monitoring the affairs of the APC and reporting back to the party where their souls have always been and by their common exit, true APC faithful in Rivers State should be celebrating, owing to the fact that those who constituted themselves into nuisance in the APC have finally departed to allow for sanity and internal reorganization.
“How people who ganged up to work against the aspiration and vision of APC for Rivers State assumed to have defected to PDP, a party they have been working for since 2015, when Dr. Dakuku Peterside was elected to fly the flag of the party, and again in 2019, when it became crystal clear that their choice candidate, Senator Magnus Abe could not fly the flag of the party, beats ones imagination”. Eze said.
“While I was watching the event through a National Television, organised by Governor Nyesom Wike and his PDP gang of clowns to receive my friends, Dr. Ibiamu Davies Ikanya, assumed State Chairman of Rivers State APC and Igo Aguma, whose notoriety to destroy APC is a public knowledge, I laughed them to scorn”.
“Since the reception, I have received several calls within and outside Nigeria asking for my stand on the defection of Dr. Ikanya whom accordin
