The Peoples Democratic Party, Bayelsa #State chapter, has described defectors of some ex-#President Goodluck Jonathan’s loyalists from the party to the All Progressives Congress in the state as shameless and inconsequential.
Recently, stream of defections has hit the #PDP in Bayelsa State with those cross-carpeting accusing the party of lacking internal democracy, full of betrayals and deceits.
But at a news briefing on Tuesday at the PDP secretariat in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital, spokesman for the party, Osom Makbere, insisted that those that defected only displayed a show of shame, saying they had no electoral value. Makbere said though the party was not disturbed by recent cases of defection of perceived loyalists of the former President Goodluck Jonathan, the defection was rather unfortunate.
He described them as “fair weather politicians”, who were only taking undue advantage of the loss of the PDP at the centre to reposition themselves as #APC members so as to curry favour and attract patronage from the APC leadership.
In as much as I frown at the language being used to classify the Peoples Democratic Party members who have defected to team up with the ruling All Progressives Congress, I think Makbere may have spoken out of anger.
The point can be further buttressed with the saying that “there are no permanent friends or enemies in politics, but the only constant thing is politics is permanent interest”.
However, let us not forget that Nigeria has suffered enough from having just the PDP rule the country for over sixteen years without credible opposition.
I sincerely hope that the wounded PDP would put their house in order and provided a formdible opposition to the ruling APC instead of defecting from the party.
