Rivers State Deputy Governor Tele Ikuru Decamps from APC to PDP




Tele Ikuru

With barely a week left to the 2015 elections, the political landscape seems to be getting more intriguing and unpredictable.

And one of the current unpredictable incidents is that Rivers State deputy governor, Tele Ikuru, has reportedly decamped from APC to PDP.

According to Premium Times, Ikuru is one of Governor Rotimi Amaechi’s biggest allies, as a result, his defection was a surprise to many.

Reports state that Ikuru has been  Amechi’s deputy since 2007, and had been campaigning with APC alongside Amaechi until he declared his defection today.

    Tele’s speech after decamping was well articulated, spoken and truthful and afterwards he washed his hands off devilish APC, no wonder Channels Tv couldn’t show his speech for Nigerians to know the simple Glaring truth …..Welcome back, you came back to yur senses

    Rivers state deputy governor has always been confused as the word confuse and voiceless all thru his duration in office so nothing surprised me with the chap.
    A week to election and he realised he was in the wrong party? I laugh in Spanish. …when will this individuals stop taking the masses for a fool.
    Can this fellas do something more productive /creative with themselves and leave politics alone.
    70% of them are unfit for purpose.
    If you like decamp to hell that your headache Mr ikuru.

    This is indeed an enigma wraped in a puzzle and contained in a riddle. Trust is a scarce commodity in Nigeria.

    You can’t blame him, Amaechi would have frustrated him if he had defected earlier. I have a couple of friends (leaders of some youth associations in PH) that have been kissing Amaechi’s b*tt just because of the favours they are enjoying from him despite their conflicting political beliefs. Sad!

    I give it to this man. He is smart, a good politician and he actually knows power game. Amaechi would have frustrated him out of his position as deputy governor had he defected earlier. A deputy governor defection isn’t just one vote lost, he is many votes lost for APC (don’t forget he has supporters who would follow him and vote PDP instead). Now, its too late to try impeach him cos Amaechi is too busy with elections campaign. It shows that this man has always been a PDP member all along, and Amaechi didn’t know! Whether you agree or not, this is a slap in the face of APC River state. Kudos Tele Ikuru!
