In a surprising turn of events, 27 members of the Rivers State House of Assembly have made a significant political shift, defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The legislators who crossed party lines are reportedly aligned with former Governor Nyesom Wike, who currently serves as the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). The political exodus occurred during a session held on Monday at the Assembly complex.
Out of the total 32 members in the House, four are said to remain loyal to Governor Siminialayi Fubara, while the remaining majority had been staunch supporters of the former governor, Nyesom Wike.
The details surrounding this political drama are expected to unfold soon. Stay tuned for updates on this developing story.
