Less than 24 hours after Marvin Yobana,an Aide to Mrs Patience Jonathan,wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan,dumped the Peoples Democratic Party,PDP, a former Caretaker Committee Chairman of Khana Local Government Area in Rivers State Sunny Bekanwa has also followed suit.
The dumping of PDP by Yobana,the African representative in the World Assembly of Youths and an influential youth mobiliser in Ogoniland and in the South-South is causing an expected panic and mass defection to APC.
The embarrassed leadership of PDP in the state has called on Governor Wike to restructure PDP in Khana local Government area to stem mass defection of PDP members to APC. Khanaa is the largest local government area in Ogoniland.
Sunny Bekanwa, was one of the 22 Caretaker committee Chairmen appointed by Governor Nyesom Wike in June 2015 immediately after Retired Justice Lambo Akanbi nullified the 23 May 2015 Local Government Election conducted by Former Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.
Sunny was received today in Bori by the Leadership of the All Progressives Congress,APC.
