The political associates of the former leader of Rivers State House of Assembly, Dr. Chidi Lloyd has come out publicly to disassociate themselves from his defection to the PDP.
Members of the group led by Barr. Emenike Ebete in a visit to a stalwart of the APC in Emohua Local government area, Barr. Austine Asomeji, referred to Chidi Lloyd’s defection to the PDP as self-centered.
According to Emenike Ebete, “we were his political associates while he was in APC. We have not seen any reason why we should leave.”
Ebete revealed that the visit became necessary to clarify public perception that they also moved with Chidi Lloyd to the PDP.
He restated their firm support and loyalty to the leadership of All Progressives Congress in Emolga led by Senator Andrew Uchendu and unalloyed loyalty to the Honourable Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi.
Ebete had stated that he was neither contacted nor informed of the decision by Chidi Lloyd and wondered why Lloyd took such decision for himself.
Also, a member of the group, Henry Amadi who’s from same ward with the defected Chidi Lloyd though recognized the good deeds of Chidi Lloyd to him where he said, “Lloyd helped me to join APC Emolga Caucus, nothing has changed in Ward 10 despite his defection.”
Henry further reaffirmed his support and loyalty to the APC.
In his reaction, Austine Asomeji stated that “the APC under the leadership of Senator Andrew Uchendu are still ready to work with those of them from the group and thanked them for coming to reaffirm that they’re still in the APC.
True Blue Reporters gathered that the group also accused Chidi Lloyd of not impacting or assisting anyone in the LGA to grow politically.
The group finally abolished their name from Chidi Lloyd Political Network to APC Emolga Political Network.
