This is why PDP is getting stronger in Bayelsa State
About 5000 persons on Thursday defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa State.
The defectors were led majorly by former political appointees, who left the PDP for the APC during the last governorship election in the state.
Receiving the defectors at the PDP Secretariat in Yenagoa, the state Governor Seriake Dickson said their decision to rejoin their former political family was a welcome development.
He said PDP remained the only political platform that would guarantee victory for persons seeking elections into various positions in 2019.
Describing the APC as the party of lies and fake promises, Dickson assured the defectors that PDP would create a level playing field and fairness for all them.
He said the PDP governnent in Bayelsa under his watch placed the state on the path of peace, prosperity and development adding that Bayelsans were happy with the party.
He told the returnees to abide by the rules of the party promising that thry would be properly integrated with their rights and privileges restored in the party.
He said: “The PDP is the only party that has a developmental agenda for the Ijaw people. What we do in PDP is to strategise to win elections and after elections we work for the development of our people because we are in politics to serve our people.
