Rivers guber: APC reveals why AAC deputy gov candidate joined PDP

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has reacted to the defection of Akpo Bomba Yeeh, the African Action Alliance, ACC, deputy governorship candidate to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Saga Gist had reported that Yeeh announced his resignation from the AAC and defection to the PDP.

Yeeh, in a letter addressed to the governorship candidate of AAC in Rivers State, Biopkomabo Awara, said his resignation from the party was informed by the alleged hijack of the party’s structure by the All Progressives Congress in the State.

But reacting APC accused Yeeh of defecting to PDP because of ‘demands of stomach infrastructure.’

A statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Senibo Chris Finebone, said Yeeh lied about the scathing allegations against the minister.

Finebone said: “We (APC) are not surprised at the news that the Deputy Governorship candidate of the AAC has resigned membership of his party to join (Governor Nyesom) Wike. We are only reacting to his decision because we adopted his principal, AAC’s governorship candidate, Awara and the fact that Mr. Akpo for want of justification for his action is struggling to lie about the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.

“Even the retarded of the house knows Mr. Akpo simply responded to demands of stomach infrastructure. We wish him well, but only want to inform Mr. Akpo that even as he struggled to read from a script written by others, that in the few days he came close, he had no opportunity to know or associate with the Minister, as to be in a position to say what he said.”
