Ex-Bayelsa SSG, others dump APC for PDP

Two of his close associates — a former Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Gideon Ekeuwei, and a former Special Adviser, Chief Rufus Abadi — along with over 2,000 of their supporters defected to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party.

Their defection is coming few days after another one of Sylva’s associates, Chief Nathan Egba, returned to the PDP.

Ekeuwei, who was the SSG during the Sylva administration, and Abadi, were received along with their supporters by Governor Seriake Dickson at the Government House in Yenagoa.

Dickson expressed happiness that the two, who he described as founding members of the PDP in the state, had experienced the other side and were ready to come back home.

He said, even though the duo worked hard for the APC during the governorship election in 2015, he saw them as brothers, calling on the people of the state to shun the ‘pull-him-down syndrome.’

The governor said, “I welcome you back home to your own party, of which we all know you are founding members in this state. We are very happy to receive you all.

“I have been informed that this is a preliminary reception. A big rally is planned for next month to receive you and your teeming supporters and to give you all the assurance that the PDP is home to all our people.

“For us, politics is about building up, not destroying. It is about preserving life, not about killing or taking life, and not about making people miserable. If you are in the business of service to men, you are serving God also”.
