Dr Chiji Collins, Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, has disclosed that 26 out of the 27 lawmakers have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Chiji made this known at the rally in support of Governor Hope Uzodinma at Owerri.
He mentioned that the legislators deflected at their free will, and assured that by the following week, the twenty-seven of them will be in APC.
“As at last night, we have 26 lawmakers who have declared for APC, and by next week, I assure you that soon the 27 will all be for APC. Wait till the next plenary when all of them will officially defect.
“We are ready to support the governor because he is ready to turn this state around.”
“Imo State will be transformed because he has a direct connection with President Muhammadu Buhari and we are going to partner fully with the government of Senator Hope Uzodinma,” he said
