The Director General of the Nyesom Wike Solidarity Movement, Sudor Nwiyor has resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and joined the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Nwiyor, who announced his resignation from the PDP in Port Harcourt on Tuesday said he switched allegiance because those who worked for the PDP are neglected “while monies are being shared to new members to entice them into the party”.
His words: “My decision stems from the faulty regime in the PDP where those who have worked for the party are dumped and abandoned, while monies are given to newcomers to entice them to the party.
“The entire leaders in the 23 local government areas of the state have had no appointment, they have been asking what is in for them, I have not been able to proffer any answer.
“This informed my decision or move to the APC. I will collapse all the WSM structures to the APC.”
Nwiyor’s boss, Governor Wike, is also rumoured to be considering joining the APC. This follows his non-consideration for the vice-presidential ticket by the PDP after emerging second in the PDP presidential primary election in May.
