All Progressives Congress (APC) in Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, has denied that its members defected to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, describing the report as “false and part of desperate machination of the PDP to misinform the wise voting people of Bayelsa State.”
APC council Chairman, Engr. Phil Tekedi in a statement, said that the party structure at the council and state levels were intact and committed to the course of the party and “are poised to usher in purposeful governance to the people of the state.
“We the entire APC leadership and party members in Sagbama council believe in the ideals of APC and categorically state that we are intact, and that those paraded in the said news report are not members of APC in any council in Bayelsa State.
“They are hired people and members of PDP. We, therefore, find the false news of the purported defection as amusing because our opponents now resort to manufacturing lies and believing the lies they create.” [Vanguard]
