Rivers - The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) criticised the All Progressives Congress (APC) for lauding the resignation of Governor Nyesom Wike’s spokesman, Opunabo Inko-Tariah.
The party described such a reaction as “misplaced” and “an indication of a party desperately in need of people to strengthen its collapsed party structure.”
PDP called it “the height of self delusion.”

“Not minding the SA’s (Special Adviser’s) resignation, the depleted APC can never make up for the mass exodus of its members that decamped to the PDP before the last general elections and since Gov. Wike assumed office,” said Jerry Needam, spokesperson to the Rivers PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah.
He claimed contrary to assertions by APC, some of its members had crossed the floor to PDP.
Needam attributed this to the fact the Wike administration had paid civil servants and pensioners as well as two football clubs owed by the immediate past administration of the APC.
“This is the only reason why the APC in the absence of any other serious engagement is celebrating the voluntary resignation of the Governor’s political aide which is his right,” Needam noted.
Inko-Tariah recently quit his position as Wike’s speaker amid frustration.
The APC projected more PDP members would quit.
