An aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Bayelsa 2019 governorship election, Great Joshua Maclver, has decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC).This comes barely 24 hours after the PDP primaries, in which Mr Maclver lost to Senator Douye Diri, who emerged as the flag bearer of the party in the November 16 gubernatorial election.
According to Maclver, he is to join hands and form “great” alliance with Chief David Lyon, candidate of the APC in the Nov. 16 gubernatorial election, to “flush” the PDP out of Bayelsa.
In a letter made available to the Press and addressed to the ward chairman, Olodiama Ward 4, Yenogoa, the governorship aspirant described the reason for his decision as “strictly personal.”
He thanked the PDP for giving him the opportunity to be part of “a building process” from the Ward, Local Government level and the State at large.
Maclver has since been received by ward chairman of the APC where he fulfilled all necessary requirements to register his membership with the party.
