Charles Kurobo, has dumped Governor Douye Diri and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All-Progressives Congress (APC), citing hunger as his major reason for defection.

Kurubo said he had to return to the APC before he dies of hunger as a political appointee to a serving governor.

According to him, he had no choice but to come out with the truth and clear his image as family members, dependants and acquaintances who depended on him have lost faith in him because he can no longer afford to take care of his responsibilities, despite working with the Diri prosperity government.

“My position as a serving SSA to the governor on special duties, is supposed to have a positive impact on the lives of those around me especially my immediate family but unfortunately, recharging my phone for effective communication would have been a great challenge if not for the timely intervention of other critical stakeholders from our Niger Delta region.
