No fewer than 400 members of the All Progressives Congress in Omagwa, Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State, on Saturday dumped the party for Peoples Democratic Party.
Receiving the defectors, the state chairman of the party, Mr. Felix Obuah, urged them to embrace the ideals of the PDP.
The state secretary of the PDP, Chief Ibibia Walter, who received the defectors on behalf of Obuah, urged them to be disciplined.
He promised that the PDP would accommodate them, but added that the newcomers must shed all toga of indiscipline.
“Today, you are admitted, not to come to make trouble because the APC is a troublesome party.
“Since you have dropped the broom, this umbrella will give you protection and peace. The PDP will not tolerate undisciplined attitude. You have come, don’t exhibit undisciplined character”, Obuah said.
He assured that the state PDP would present a level-headed person as its candidate for the 2015 governorship election.
