I’m Confident More PDP Governors Will Follow Umahi To APC – Uzodinma

Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma has expressed confidence that more governors from the South-East would dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC) when his Ebonyi State counterpart, David Umahi joins the ruling party in a couple of days.

Uzodinma revealed this while addressing reporters 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.

There are speculations that the Ebonyi State Governor hinted the PDP national executive committee of his plan to dump the PDP for APC.

Speaking on Monday, Uzodima said: “If you recall when I addressed you here a couple of months ago, I told you that the moment I resumed 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 are hearing 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 very glad and it will be my joy to welcome a governor and more governors, not only him, we are still talking more governors to join.

“APC is the ruling party and for the interest of national integration and cohesion, Imo and South-East, indeed, need to become part and parcel of the ruling party to make the Nigerian project a complete project.”

He noted that he was at the party secretariat to contribute his quota to the party’s strategy for the December 5 Senatorial bye-election.

“I’m at the headquarters of our great party to meet with the critical stakeholders and officers of our party on the status and going on of events in our great party and I had a private audience with the National Chairman and some members of the NWC (Caretaker) and also to be able to touch base with our preparedness for the upcoming bye-election.

“Of course, you know any moment from now there will be a Senatorial bye-election in Imo State, Imo North Senatorial District and I think our party is prepared, in Imo too we are prepared. APC is the party to beat in Imo State.”
