Ex-NDDC boss, Alaibe, ditches APC for PDP in Bayelsa
Alaibe defected on Friday, allegedly with over 6,000 supporters.
Others are B.Z. Onniye and Ebamua Empere of the state legislature; former Secretary to Bayelsa State Government, Gideon Ekeuwei; one-time Commissioner for Youths and Sports, Kemi Prefa; ex-Chairman of Sagbama Local Government Area, Barnabas Edure; and former Executive Secretary, SUBEB, Rhodesia Whyte.
Receiving Alaibe in Government House Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, Governor Seriake Dickson noted that the defection of the former NDDC MD and his teeming followers did not only give credence to the supremacy of PDP but also signified the end of the APC in the state.
He further said the defection had justified his earlier claim that the APC lacked capacity to win any election in Bayelsa State, as its leadership had brazenly demonstrated lack of interest in the welfare and development of the state.
