Chairman of the All Progressives Congress in ward 16, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State, Achinike Owhomka has reportedly defected to the Social Democratic Party, SDP.
Owhomka and his supporters were received by governorship candidate of the party Sen. Magnus Abe on Saturday at Freedom House GRA, Port Harcourt.
