Bayelsa State Government on Thursday described persons dumping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressive Congress (APC) ahead of the December 5 governorship election in the state as tested and failed politicians.
The Deputy Chief of Staff, Government House, Mrs. Ebizi Brown, while stating the government’s position, said the high rate of defections of politicians would not affect the chances of the PDP in the election.
She said: “On the defection of members from the PDP, I want to say that their defections won’t make any impact. The PDP is waxing stronger by the day despite their exit.
“Many of those who have become media tigers, were those who have been tested and failed. We are not perturbed by their antics as they are not forces to reckon with. When they were given opportunities to serve, they failed. Bayelsans at the grassroots know them. They also know that PDP is their party and it cares for them.”
