The Rivers State Chairman of the party, Chief Felix Obuah, disclosed yesterday in Port Harcourt that members of the party would organize a thanksgiving service to celebrate the exit of the governor from the party and to thank God for answering their prayers.
Chief Obuah also said members of the party were not surprised about the 'official exit' of the aggrieved G7 governors from the party.
Rather, he explained that the governor's defection to APC was a vindication of the party's earlier revelation.
Obuah, in a statement signed by his Special
Adviser on Media, Mr. Jerry Needam, said PDP welcomed the development, describing it as a big relief.
According to him, the leadership of the party had continued to tolerate the actions of the governor over a period of time, both at the state and national levels,
He explained that with his defection the party now stood a better chance of delivering dividends of democracy to the people
"The party further congratulated all those who have over the period, joined hands with its leadership in fighting against dictatorship, impunity and abuse of rights of the citizenry in Rivers State.
The PDP however, wishes Governor Amaechi and his supporters best of luck in their future endeavour," the statement said.
Reacting to the merger, the Chief of Staff, Government House, Chief Tony Okocha said: "In recent times, it is the best thing that has happened to our democracy, because, it is a merger of like minds. People who are resolved to catapult the country from the dungeon that we are now, to an apposite point. It is a good omen for the country and our democracy. So, we thank God and bless God for the day.
