Rivers crisis: Lawmaker makes U-turn, returns to PDP after defection

Linda Somari Stewart, one of the Rivers State House of Assembly members who defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC, has made a U-turn.

Stewart, who represents Okrika in the State Assembly, has returned to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, after defecting to the APC with other members of the House.

Recall that 27 state lawmakers believed to be loyal to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, had defected to the APC.

Following their defection, the Speaker of the House declared their seats vacant.

The development followed the face-off between Wike and his successor, Governor Sim Fubara.
