Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma has boasted that more Governors and political leaders in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), will soon defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC), ahead of 2023 presidential election.
Speaking on Monday, Uzodinma said the defection of his Ebonyi state counterpart, Governor Dave Umahi will soon be confirmed.
“If you recall when I addressed you here a couple of months ago, I told you that the moment I resume office in Imo State as the governor, that the impression and the perception of our party in the Southeast will change and the effect will be that more credible individuals and governors will join the party.
“Today, I am being vindicated because we are hearing it and I’m sure in a few hours from now, we will get a confirmation that one of our best will be joining the party: the governor of Ebonyi State.
“Of course, I will be very glad and it will be my joy to welcome a governor and more governors, not only him. We are still talking to more governors to join.
“APC is the ruling party and for the interest of national integration and cohesion, Imo and Southeast indeed, need to become part and parcel of the ruling party to make the Nigerian project complete” he said.
