Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC)
is celebrating two major defections from the People’s Democratic Congress (PDP)
in Rivers State.
The duo of former Chairman of the Security Committee of
Governor Nyesom Wike’s New Rivers Vision Campaign Organisation,
Brigadier-General Elton David Amah, and former Chairman of the House of
Representatives Committee on Housing, Urban Development, Industries and Police
Affairs, Edwin Oludi, have reportedly decamped to the APC.
The duo expressed displeasure with the leadership of
Amah said he was driven by the desire to contribute to
the development of Rivers State when he joined the PDP on retirement from
active service but was disillusioned with the PDP due to some reasons.

He attributed his dumping the PDP to the fact that he was
no longer comfortable and compatible with some of the major characters in PDP
in Rivers State, hence his decision to decamp and join the APC.
“Most of the people in the APC are my friends; I feel
comfortable working with these my friends,” Amah declared.
Oludi ascribed his decision to move to the APC to his
desire to have peace and his belief that APC governorship candidate, Dr Dakuku
Peterside, was a man of honour.
“Dakuku Peterside has the vision. I can tell you that if
we vote Dakuku into power as governor, we will have no regret at all,” Oludi
PDP had not commented on the said defections.
