Rivers APC Publicity Secretary defects to PDP

The Publicity Secretary of the  All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Senibo Chris Finebone, has decamped to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Finebone, a long-standing ally of former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, confirmed his defection to newsmen in the early hours of Friday.

However, he did not give any reason for his defection. On his verified Twitter account, Finebone said, “Similanayi Fubara, PDP governorship candidate is my brother; know it and know peace!”

Shortly after he defected to PDP, Finebone visited Governor Nyesom Wike’s Ada George road residence in Port Harcourt in the company of the former State Chairman of APC, Dr Davis Ikanya, and the PDP governorship candidate.

The development comes amid the alleged alliance between Governor Nyesom Wike and chieftains of the APC.

It was also gathered that Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the APC-controlled House of Representatives, would commission some projects in Rivers today.

Earlier in the week, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State and Senator Aliyu Wamakko, both strong APC members commissioned projects executed by Wike.

During the commissioning, Wike, who is having a running battle with the PDP, under whose platform he was twice elected governor, fired indirect shots at his party.

“If you say Rivers State does not matter, Rivers State will tell you that you don’t also matter at the appropriate time. If you don’t like us, we will not like you. If you like us, we will like you. Nobody will use our votes for nothing. Our votes will matter and Rivers State must benefit from anybody that we are going to support,” he had said on Monday.

During Wamakko’s visit, the Rivers governor had said effective leadership was not about political party, stressing that he would still perform well outside the PDP.
