A former Commandant of the National Defence College (NDC), Abuja, Rear Admiral Thomas Lokoson (rtd) has defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic (PDP) in Bayelsa State.
Lokoson was received on Saturday by the members and leaders of the PDP at his Ward 5 in Otuan community in Constituency One of the Southern Ijaw Local Government Government Area, Bayelsa Central Senatorial District.
His cross-carpeting happened about three weeks after Governor Douye Diri rejected political overtures from a chieftain of the APC and former Deputy Governor of the state, Peremobowei Ebebi to dump the PDP for the APC.
Speaking at the event, Lokoson said his decision to return to the PDP was as a result of the performance and achievements of the Diri-led administration in the state.
The former boss of the NDC thanked the PDP for welcoming him back to the party, noting that the present administration had demonstrated sufficient enthusiasm for the overall development of the state.
