Tele Ikuru, Rivers state Deputy Governor who has been Amaechi’s Deputy Governor since 2007 has defected to the PDP – During his address to the people of the state, Ikuru said he had joined the APC out of “extreme loyalty” to Governor Amaechi:
“Today, I address you out of the fullness of my heart. Recall that in December 2013 out of extreme loyalty to my boss and friend, I joined the APC along with other disillusioned Rivers people.
“Ever since, as a true nature of APC unfold, I continued to twist and turn in extreme mental and emotional agony. The more I struggle to belong, the more the Rivers in me rejects the APC.
“After carefully studying and analysing 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 the robe of pretence and deceit.
“APC is a party founded on deception and entrenched on unwholly propaganda and falsehood.
“I therefore on behalf of my teeming supporters and my humble self denounce the APC and we all jointly and severally resign our membership of the APC.
“My dear people of Rivers state we of this generation will not in good conscience , forgiveness and compassion out of posterity for the spirit of our unborn generation if it is recorded on the annals of history that after 48 years of Rivers people supporting leaders from all other parts of this country without resources will where the same and handed down the very first ever president from this region granted us by privilege.
“In the light of the above I therefore wish to use this privilege to call on all my supporters and the good people of Rivers state to join hands with other well meaning Nigerians to massively vote for President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and the transformation agenda that has brought so much relief and succour to the greatest number of Nigerians.
