The Deputy Governor of Rivers state, Tele Ikuru has described the All Progressives Congress, APC as “a party of rebels”.
Ikuru also said the APC was a party found on falsehood and propaganda.
The Rivers state Deputy Governor made the declaration during his address to the people of the state.
Ikuru who has been Amaechi’s Deputy Governor since 2007 in the address said he had joined the APC out of “extreme loyalty” to Governor Amaechi.
According to Ikuru “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.
Ikuru further urged his teeming supporters and the people of Rivers state to vote for the PDP at all levels of the general elections.
While describing the PDP Governorship candidate in the state, Nyesom Wike as a patriotic Rivers man who means well for the people, Ikuru charged the people of the state to vote for President Jonathan this weekend.
“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.
“I therefore wash my hands off this treachery.
“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.
