PDP Leaders Have Turned Wike To MMM – APC


The All Progressives Congress, APC, Rivers State Chapter has reacted to the defection of some of its top party members to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the State.

The reaction was contained in a statement signed by APC spokesman, Chris Finebone on Thursday​.​

The APC said the “​inconsequential and worthless defections have become the easiest means PDP leaders use to get money from the Governor in MMM-like money-making schemes”.

It added that the defection of the chieftains to the PDP was a show of shame.

The statement reads: “Let it be on record that important APC stakeholders in Asari-Toru LGA have a dossier on the romance between Orolosama Amachree and the PDP in ASALGA over time.

“This culminated in a meeting they all held with Gov. Nyesom Wike on December 8, 2016 in Government House, Port Harcourt. Subsequently, the APC placed surveillance on Orolosama while APC members in ASALGA distanced themselves from him especially in view of his treacherous behaviour during the December 10 rerun elections.

“It is laughable to hear Chief Glory Emeh refered to APC as party of lies and propaganda. In due time, a public presentation of the series of his lies and propaganda against his present master will be made to help the public judge who between APC and Chief Emeh revels more in propaganda.

“Therefore, Orolosama Amachree formally pitching camp with the PDP is long expected and he is not likely to refrain from his penchant for easy money which has become very dire of late.

“On that account we believe it is good riddance to bad rubbish especially to the APC stakeholders in ASALGA who have endured and tolerated Orolosama’s antics for too long.

“The so-called high numbers who defected with him is mere story for the gods. We wish the spin doctors of the scheme better and bigger pay from Gov Nyesom Wike. Unfortunately, the gang is milking Rivers money from the governor in the name of organising defections.

“The APC will encourage the PDP to look for all manner of persons and parade as APC defectors as long as the essence of the exercise is for the schemers to put food on their table and smile to the bank.

“True members of APC will continue to remain true to the party and its ideals while persons who place pecuniary interests above anything else are free to go scrounge for crumbs under Caesar’s table.”

'I met him at a beer parlour. It was at Ojez in Surulere, I went there to chill with my brother E-money.
So a guy came on stage, took off his shirt and dazzled, we were impressed, sprayed him money and gave him my card to call me when we were leaving".

"By the time Harrysong came to the house, I had already brought Iyanya from Calabar because I also discovered Iyanya at a bar signing too, so I moved him to Lagos after speaking with his mum.

We registered Iyanya for the MTN project fame then he went for auditions in Calabar and he was picked.

I paid for Iyanya's first ever flight to Lagos, it was a virgin Nigeria flight, I remember".

They did report for investigation this morning and they have gone back home. And the investigation continues and preparation to charge them to court continued.
