The rank of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) got depleted on Friday, October 6, with the defection of at least 5,000 members to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
However, the high-point of the development was the alleged photograph of the culture and tourism commissioner, Victor Antai, kneeling to beg the defectors from leaving the ruling party in the state.
The APC News TV, which posted the photographs, stated that Hon Antai knelt to beg Okon Bassey and other PDP defectors to APC in Urueofong/Oruko, Akwa Ibom state.
The report said the 5,000 former PDP members were drawn from a component of five local government areas of the state.
They were received into the APC by the chairman of the party in the state, Dr Amadu Attai, and witnessed by the federal commissioner of the National Population Commission (NPC), Engr Benedict Ukpong.
NAIJ.com earlier reported that Mr Victor Antai presented a car gift to an online blogger in his state.
According to reports, Blogger Uduak Inwang has every reason to smile as he has just ‘effortlessly’ become the owner of a free car.
