Some prominent leaders of the Peoples Democratic #Party in Bayelsa #State have debunked media reports which alleged that they have concluded plans to team up with the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Former deputy governor of the state, Mr. Ebebi, and former Minister of Transport, Festus Porbeni, and a host of others denied their involvement in the proposed defection in separate statements on Tuesday.
According to a report by PREMIUM TIMES, Mr. Porbeni in a statement noted that “it is an insult for anyone to associate him with the #APC,” adding that he was “never consulted and as a matter of principle not ready or disposed to leaving the #PDP.
“It was a rude shock to hear and actually see my name as one of those slated for defection to the APC on Saturday but the truth is that it is a false claim. I was neither consulted nor am I convinced to change party ahead of the #election. The reason so far adduced is not convincing beyond the personal interest,” he stated.
On his part, Mr. Ebebi stated that he remained a committed member of the PDP and would work to ensure the party’s victory in the December 5 election.
According to him, any decision to change party should be predicated on “some substantive and noble values and in convincing consultation,” noting that “the opposition party was not and could never be a better alternative in the state for now”.
