Political Shake-up in Rivers State Assembly as 27 PDP Members Defect to APC


In a surprising turn of events, twenty-seven members of the Rivers State House of Assembly have recently made a significant political move, defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to join the All Progressives Congress (APC).

This major realignment reportedly occurred during Monday’s legislative session at the Assembly complex.

The group of defectors is notably composed of members who were previously aligned with former Governor Nyesom Wike, who presently serves as the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The decision to switch party allegiance underscores a shift in the political landscape within the state.

Out of the total 32 members comprising the House, reports suggest that four remain loyal to Governor Siminialayi Fubara. The remaining House members, prior supporters of Wike, have opted to join the APC.

This development adds a new dynamic to the political dynamics of the state, and the implications of this mass defection are likely to unfold in the coming weeks.

The political landscape in Rivers State seems poised for further changes as the state legislators navigate this unexpected transition.
