In the wake of recent cross-caperting in the political scene, Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri has vowed not to defect from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
This promise is coming after a former Deputy Governor, Chief Peremobowei Ebebi, had at the weekend, during stakeholders meeting of the APC in Ekeremor Local Government Area, called on Diri to take cue from other PDP governors and dump the party which he described as a “sinking ship”.
Reacting to the call, Diri declared his total commitment to the PDP, saying he is going nowhere.

He stated that though he appreciated the APC for acknowledging that his administration is performing in Bayelsa in terms of development and good governance, the call for him to dump PDP is unfortunate, provoking and unwelcome.
The Governor made this known through his Director General, New Media, Mr. Kola Oredipe, in a statement on Sunday.
He said: “It will be a political suicide to leave the only party that exists in Bayelsa State to join a party that has no root, structure in the state.
“Ebebi must be a joker. We know him for many acts of theatrics and at this time too, it is not different. He has confessed that the Governor is not doing badly meaning that the PDP is on the right track, why then go to join a party that has taken Nigeria many years back?”
