Governor Hope Uzodimma, of Imo State, has claimed that more of his counterparts will join the APC, from PDP, following in the footsteps of David Umahi of Ebonyi state.
There were reports that David Umahi had concluded plans to defect from PDP to the APC ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Speaking to journalists after a closed-door meeting with the Chairman of the Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the APC, Governor Mai Mala Buni, and other members of the committee, at the APC National Secretariat, Abuja on Monday, said more governors would soon dump PDP for the APC.
“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 South East will change and the resultant effect will be that more credible individuals and Governors will even join the party.
“Today, I am being vindicated because we hear it and I’m sure a few hours from now we get a confirmation that one of our best will be joining the party and (he) is the Governor of Ebonyi State.
“Of course, I will be happy, and it will be my joy to welcome a governor and more governors, not only him, we are still talking more governors into joining,” Uzodimma said.
