Amaechi's Deputy,tele Ikuru Concludes Plans To Join PDP

christian nwodo - Sunday, March 22, 2015

The chances of the All Progressives Congress, APC, of winning the forthcoming 2015 general elections in Rivers state may have become slimmer with the latest development in the state, as reports reaching DAILY POST indicates that the deputy governor of the state, Engr. Tele Renner Ikuru have concluded plans to dump the party for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP

According sources in the state capital, Port Harcourt, Gov. Rotimi Amaechi deputy may have fallen for the overtures from the PDP to wreck APC and Amaechi chances at the elections in the state.

A source in-the-know who pleaded anonymity told DAILY POST that the Deputy Governor discovered that he may run at a loss if he remains in the APC after many years of loyalty to Governor Amaechi.

The Source accused the APC Chairman in Rivers State, Davies Ibyamu-Ikanya who is from the same Local Government with the Deputy Governor of expanding the crack after forcefully hijacking the party structure in the area.

According to the source, “The Deputy Governor has been angry since he lost the APC governorship ticket to Dakuku Peterside. To compound his woes, the party Chairman (Davies Ikanya) hijacked the party structure of Andoni from him. But His Excellency (Amaechi) has been quiet. He did not do anything about it. He is not always in the state to address issues at home.

“It was all over the media that Deputy is not happy. He has been loyal to His Excellency for the past 7 years, especially during the Governor’s travails.

“The man had to go instead of losing everything. And many more will go too. We don’t blame him. The PDP brought a better offer even after releasing so much money to him. We hope this serves as a lesson to Governor Amaechi. It is quite unfortunate,” the source said.

In the meantime, the Rivers State Deputy Governor, Tele Ikuru is expected to make his official announcement this week. Days before the Presidential election.

Engr. Tele Ikuru is from the same Constituency with the Governorship candidate of the APC, Dakuku Peterside. He is also from the same community with the National Deputy Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, who is believed to be behind this latest development.
