PDP CARPETS DECAMPEES, DESCRIBES THEM AS INGRATES
The Peoples’ Democratic Party, (PDP), Bayelsa state has described the decision of Chief Alex Ekiotenne and his followers to dump the party for the All Progressives Congress, (APC),as not only embarrassing, but disgraceful, having benefitted immensely from the present administration in the state.
Chief Ekiotenne had in a statement alleged lack of strategic planning, priotisation and a result oriented advisory system, as having impaired productivity and sustained performance of the Governor Seriake Dickson led administration in Bayelsa State.
However, the Party in a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Barr. Osom Macbere, described Chief Ekiotenne as a self centred politician, disclosing that, he has benefitted so much from the present administration, in terms of award of contracts and appointments of his siblings, relations and close associates.
Calling on him to tell Bayelsans the truth and the main reasons for his sudden cross carpeting, the party stated that his action is being influenced by greed and selfishness.
It notes that, the self styled spokesman of the phantom organization “Bayelsa Peoples Consultative Assembly” is defecting to the All Progressives Congress, APC, because the Governor turned down his request to hire one of his guest houses for a monthly fee of N150 million, as was the case during the previous administration in the State.
The State Governor, according to the statement, saw the hiring of the said guest house as unnecessary and a waste of the scarce resources of the State and turned it down.
It pointed out that, it was for this reason that, Chief Ekiotenne abandoned the PDP for the APC.
