Yenagoa - The Bayelsa State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has denied a report that more of its members are planning to defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC), reports Daily Post.
A socio-political movement, Bayelsa Great House, was reported to have said the party’s former Chairman, Sam Inokoba, who recently defected to the APC, was wooing other key members of the PDP to join him in APC.

But in a statement on Sunday, the state Secretary of the party, Keku Godspower said the claim was false since PDP’s leadership and members were behind Governor Seriake Dickson and were committed to his re-election.
Godspower said Inokoba does not have the political strength to swing the support of PDP members for the APC.
The PDP secretary described the former Chairman and other defectors as selfish, who engaged in anti-party activities for some time.
