Imo: Former PDP National Auditor dumps party for APC
Barely 48 hours after the Supreme Court sacked Chief Emeka Ihedioha as Imo State Governor, former Deputy National Auditor of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Regis Uwakwe, has dumped the party for the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Addressing a press conference Thursday, January 16, in Owerri, Chief Uwakwe explained that he opted to join the APC, following the current political events in Imo State and Nigeria, after due consultation with his family and political associates.
“I was part of the Ali Modu Sheriff faction of the PDP, with the new Imo Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, while that crisis lasted. It is, however, sad to note that the ousted governor, Chief Ihedioha, neither implemented our terms of agreement nor appointed any of us to any office, during his short-lived administration”, Uwakwe said.
Making reference to the Supreme Court judgment, the former PDP chieftain opined that since the position of the Apex Court is final, the citizenry must accept its judgment.
