Ebebi Peremobowe has quit the Peoples Democratic Party to join the All Progressives Congress.
Mr Peremobowe, a former Deputy Governor in Bayelsa State left the PDP on October 11, a few weeks before the Governorship elections.
In his resignation letter, Mr Peremobowe, who also served as speaker of the South-South State said the party he was leaving was becoming known for failing to follow “due process.”
The popular ijaw politican said he had “come to this hard decision after experiencing an enduring and excruciating period of a largely fraudulent internal democracy in the state chapter of the PDP, disregard and disrespect for due process as entrenched in the PDP constitution and electoral guidelines, high-handedness and desperation of the party’s leadership.
“The fact that my membership of the party is ending does not diminish the great political experience I have enjoyed. It has been absolutely outstanding.
“I am thankful for the opportunity the Larry gave me to serve the state in various capacities especially as a two-time Speaker of the State House of Assembly and two-time Deputy Governor of Bayelsa State, which offered me outstanding political career development and enabled me gained irreplaceable experience in politics.”
However, the outgoing Governor of the state said he was not disturbed by the news of Mr Peremobowe’s defection to the APC.
