Rivers APC Chairman Dumps APC For PDP At Last Hour by anwo247: 12:33pm On Mar 27, 2015
The Rivers State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Davies Ikanya has concluded plans to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Information just reaching us from one of the chairman’s aides has it that his boss, Chief Davies Ikanya, Rivers APC Chairman held a meeting with top PDP leaders to discuss his defection.

Chief Ikanya was quoted to have said that he should be given sometime to enable him sought out some logistics that would ensure the release of some funds promised him by the Governor.

He however promised to mobilize support for the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan.

When contacted, one of his Special Assistants, Mr. James K. Iyok confirmed the meeting with the leadership of the PDP and the assurance of Chief Davis Ikanya to ensure that President Goodluck Jonathan wins the presidential election.

He told scannews.com that Chief Ikanya is unhappy that Governor Amaechi is working against President Goodluck Jonathan

While PDP has been gaining ground, consolidating on strongholds and making inroad in the North, the APC were busy wth their propaganda, going from one USA Town Hall meeting to another and one Chatham house to Another. APC has nothing to offer Nigerians, we have seen their fraud. Just like we did in 2011, we shall troop out to re-elect Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and PDP tomorrow. Leet the Transformation Continue!

Democracy is beautiful when played according to the rules and tenets.
Let's do some FACT-CHECK before the election tomorrow.
COMPARATIVE PERFORMANCE INDEX: BETWEEN OBJ AND GEJ
Cumulative budgets of OBJ and GEJ.
- OBJ: 1999-2007, total budget N9.21tn for 8 yrs in office.
- GEJ: 2010-2014, total budget N23.45tn for 4 yrs in office.
Effectively GEJ has spent in 5 years a sum that's about 2.5 times what OBJ spent in 8 yrs.
OBJ regime grew our external reserves by a staggering 930% from $5bn to $45bn in 1999, paid up a $12bn external debt, grew the economy from below 3% to over 7%, agric sector also grew by same margin to a record high of 7.4% by the end of 2006, reduced unemployment to a record low of about 6% by 2006, domestic debt to about N2tn by 2007, still left $22bn in the excess crude account and actually improved the exchange rate from 133 to 117 Naira to the Dollar until the global financial recession of 2008/2009.
GEJ regime has not added a dime to the external reserves despite earning far higher revenue than any Nigerian president in history but has actually depleted the reserves, escalated external debt, economy still below 7%, agric sector growth dropped to 5% (forget the hype about eliminating corruption in fertilizer distribution), grew unemployment to over 23% (record), poverty incidence to 71% (another record), grew domestic debt to N7.65tn from N4.5tn in 2010, has depleted excess crude account and we now have the worst exchange rate in the history of this country.
Remember all of these happened in an era of unprecedented boom!!!
Think change, Friends!!!
Whenever they mouth their so called 'transformation' mantra, confront them with these facts. Whatever they are showing as achievements paned out in the face of humongous resources accruing to this regime. It has been stealing unlimited under GEJ and the country is almost bankrupted at the moment.
Already GEJ is a disaster as a the President of this great nation, re-electing him is disaster re-loaded and tripled but we have the power to stop it; please use it!!!!
Vote Change!!
Vote Buhari!!!

the northern political elites and powerbrokers had settled for gej long time ago. The last remaining zone to bring was the south west and gej has done that ,to be honest this ur calculation is flawed ,gej will win by 70% you just wait and see. If buhari wins 2 states in the south west that will be a great miracle.

Oga, that result na 2011 no be prediction. For the SW, Buhari will lose woefully! His only hope is Osun but with Aregbesola don poo for church. Other 5 State will be won by PDP at the Presidential level. After the election we go discuss that of Governorship.

you are one of the best political analysts here on nairaland. Many simply don't understand the dynamics of nigerian politics thus believing that apc will win the presidency. Yes you are quite right and as I have always said pdp major interest in the south west is the presidency ,pdp will leave the opposition to finish themselve off in the governorship race in the south west, sdp will trade tackles with apc while pdp stays on the sideline ,labour party,sdp and accord will kill off apc in oyo state . Lagos is the only state that it will be a majorly 2 party contest . With what is on ground today ,it will be a miracle if apc or buhari wins 2 states in the south west. 90% of those shouting sai buhari aren't gonna vote so their shouts and noise are irrelevant .

You are so correct. The Oyo NASS and State elections and that of Ogun will be the most interesting. Ondo and Ekiti we all know that APC is losing popularity in the two states. APC should watch out for Osun State because what happened to AD in 2003 might befall them in the State election if they take the people for granted. I am aware that Rauf is owing 5months Salary, that is a big minus as long as politics is concerned. For the first time in 10years will Lagos PDP approach the poll (State and NASS) poll as a united front with popular Governorship candidate. The election for Lagos Central between Dosumu and Mrs Tinubu will shock many people. As for the Presidential, APC should start hiring their Lawyers..

lagos election is the main cracker for many reason ,lagos is the very lifeline of apc and tinubu ,once lagos is gone ,tinubu is finished . On the other hand pdp knows that this is their best chance to win lagos ,lagosians are dis chanted with apc and openly showing it,pdp has a popular candidate ,and the national pdp is giving the state maximum support to win the state ,this is a titanic battle unfortunately a big set back for buhari because south west apc that seemed to formed his bedrock of support have withdraw their financial backing thus crippling buhari campaign . Can buhari win without funds? NO . Pdp on the other hand has enough funds to use and pdp has successfully divided the south west and every single yoruba state. Tinubu and his apc state governors will rather concentrate their money and resources in winning their state guber elections than pumping scarce resources into buhari campaign knowing fully well his chances of winning are slim. All the campaign of south west apc for the past 3 weeks have been limited to the south west,they have left buhari to himself.

The mistake APC made is that they spend money on unnecessary things and rather than get endorsement, they arrogantly assume that their propaganda is enough to give them victory. Them never see anything yet!

that is another point I showed some ppl but their blinded folly devotion to tinubu won't make them see the facts of things. Apc took the south west voters for granted and believed they could always bring tinubu and his magic juju broom and win . They stopped wooing the local heads of families and communities and they assumed that once they dominate the online propaganda machine ,every other segement of the society will be forced to follow. This is where gej and pdp played a smart and intelligent political move ,by meeting all these magajis,baales ,opc ,obas,market leaders and by giving them a reason to vote for him . Apc never gave south west voters any sensible reason for ppl to vote for buhari except that he is a member of apc . Gej met with every single party in the south west , little by little they all have given him their support ,this is the support which should have been apc own if they hadn't been arrogantly foolish . Now many yorubas are willing to do anything to make gej win. Apc unfortunately in their own domain is now push back. Many apc online boys and girls still don't know but by the 29 when results starts trickling in their eyes will clear .

Ikanya refutes PDP defection reports
2015-03-27 08:05
Lagos - All Progressives Congress Chairman in the Rivers State, Davies Ikanya, dismissed reports he had defected to the ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP). Ikanya denounced this as a “ridiculous rumour.”
“That will never happen. Whoever started or is spreading that lie should be treated for acute malaria,” he said. He disclosed that the rumour came to his attention while he was chairing a recent meeting of APC stakeholders with Governor Rotimi Amaechi in the Government House in Port Harcourt.
“Let me state emphatically that should everybody decide to dump APC today, I, Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, will be the last person
to dump the party because I am a man of principles. You can be rest assured of this,”he emphasised.He dismissed the reports as the handiwork of the PDP. kanya alleged last Monday, Felix Obuah, the PDP State Chairman,while receiving the defected Deputy Governor, Tele Ikuru, boasted that about six commissioners in Amaechi’s cabinet would be joining them by Wednesday.

“That is, two days ago. If I may ask, where are the commissioners that have joined them? Of course, only a Judas Iscariot can join them. In every given time only one Judas exists and he has already departed, thereby leaving APC more virile, united and stronger
