Sen. Seriake Dickson, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said that there will be a shock in the country between now and next year because many politicians will decamp from one political party to another.
The immediate past Governor of Bayelsa State spoke on Channels Television’s Politics Today, on Wednesday.
Dickson, who currently represents Bayelsa-West in the National Assembly, noted that Nigeria has not reached its peak with respect to the decamping season.
Recall that prominent members of the main opposition PDP have switched camp to the All Progressives Congress (APC) recently with Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, leading the league of PDP governors to the ruling party.
Shortly after, Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State and Governor Matawalle Bello of Zamfara State followed suit.
Also, Sen. Joy Emordi, a member Board of Trustees of the PDP, defected from the party to the APC on Wednesday.
Speaking on the development, Dickson said, “Between now and the peak of the decamping season, which will be next year, you will be shocked how many people will move either this way or that way.
“Don’t be surprised to see a lot of chicken coming home to roost, don’t be surprised to see some other birds of passage flocking around. That is what we have come to know.
“Is it the right thing to do? No. Is that the way to deepen our democracy, no? Does that speak well of our democratic structure, no? Unfortunately, that is the ugly reality we have to deal with.” He stated
