300 members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ubima in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers state have dumped the party to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to reports, Ubima is the hometown of the minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.
The minister and the Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike have been engaging in a battle of supremacy.
Receiving the decampees, the Rivers PDP spokesman, Samuel Nwanosike said “I have a message for the people of Ubima and Ikwerre local Government. APC has failed the people of Ubima, the party which has your son Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi as its leader in the state has failed the people of Ikwerre local government”.
Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi served as the fifth Governor of Rivers State from 2007 to 2015.
