Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State has urgently called for a meeting with the members of the State Executive Council at the Government House in Port Harcourt, amidst reports that 27 lawmakers have defected to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).

The lawmakers reportedly left the governing Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during a House of Assembly sitting, and were subsequently seen holding the flags of the APC in a group photograph.

The move follows longstanding tensions between Fubara and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, who is the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, over the party’s structure in the state.
