Tele Ikuru, deputy governor of Rivers State, has dumped the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, describing the APC “as a party of rebels, insurgents and anarchists, clothed in robes of pretence and deceit.”
In a statement released on Sunday, Ikuru said he joined the APC in December 2013, out of extreme loyalty to Rotimi Amaechi, “my boss and friend, I joined the APC, along
with other then disillusioned Rivers People. Ever since, as the true nature and motives of APC are unveiled, I have continued to twist and turn in extreme mental and emotional agony. The more I struggle to belong, the more the Rivers man in me rejects the APC.
“After carefully studying, interacting and analyzing the leadership of the party, I have come to the sad conclusion that the APC is a party of rebels, insurgents and anarchists, clothed in robes of pretence and deceit.”
He said the APC is a party founded on deception and it thrives on unholy propaganda and falsehood.
Ikuru was first elected deputy governor to Celestine Omehia in 2007, before the duo was removed by the Supreme Court less than six months in office. When Amaechi was sworn in as governor, he retained Ikuru as his deputy and the duo fought against the interests and allies of the former governor of the state, Peter Odili.Follow Us on Social Media
