No fewer than 30 persons defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC from the PDP in Imo State yesterday.
Among the decampees were, Barr Charles Ezekwem (Ikemba Okigwe) – former Chairman of the PDP, Damian Opara – former Publicity Secretary of PDP and his assistant, Hon Harry Ihebinike, Francis Eze Ugochukwu – former SSA on Public Enlightenment to ousted Emeka Ihedioha, State Youth Leader of PDP – Aburi Williams Ahanonu, Legal Adviser – Jerry Egemba, some national officers, LGA chairmen and others.
The defecting members took turns to speak glowingly of Governor Hope Uzodinma whom they said is development conscious and progressive minded, while noting that they left their former party PDP with its soul and heart, as the party is now left with an empty shell.
In what appeared to be a drama of sort, a minute silent was observed for the repose of the soul of PDP.
Worthy of note is that hundreds of thousands of their supporters joined them to the APC.
