400 APC Members Join Atiku Group In Rivers


Over 400 members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Rivers State have indicated interest to join a pro Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) group, Amalgamation of Nigeria Interest Group for Atiku Abubakar.
The state Women Leader of the group, Amb. Mrs Christie Iwezor who disclosed this during the group’s meeting in Port Harcourt said that the defectors will soon be presented to the state Chairman of the (PDP), Bro. Felix Obuah.
Mrs Iwezor said that with the defection, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has decimated in the State.
She also described the Federal High Court Judgement which barred the APC from fielding candidates in the forthcoming general elections in the state as a victory for democracy and the rule of law.
According to her, the court ruling has also shown that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is a party whose foundation was built on impunity, stressing that the situation will ensure peace during the elections.
Iwezor said that the Amalgamation of Nigeria Interest Groups for Atiku will embark on series of campaigns and sensitizations across the state with a view to ensuring that women’s rights are not viloated during the forthcoming general elections.
