Ahead of the fulfilment of the political prophecy of fierce cleric, Rev.Fr.Ejike Mbaka, a former Speaker of Imo State House of Assembly, Godfrey Dikeocha has dumped the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Dikeocha, who announced his defection at his home in Ndigbo Uvuru, Aboh Mbaise Local Government when leaders of APC visited him also hailed President Buhari’s anti-corruption battle.
The ex-Speaker said Buhari’s anti-corruption principles had made impact in the country.
He said: “I believe in the anti-corruption principles of Mr. President, and he is fighting it no matter the pitfalls. Despite the misgiving in the Southeast, Mr. President has started doing visible projects for the region.
“Even in PDP days, we orchestrated the 2nd Niger Bridge that never took off, but today something is going on in the place, including renovation work going on in Akanu Ibiam International Airport.
“Southeasterners of PDP extraction were ministers and they did nothing to upgrade the airport, but the President is doing wonderful work there despite not getting votes from the region.”
Dikeocha, however, urged the President to extend the railway project to the Southeast.
The party chief promised to help rebuild APC in the state, saying the time had come for Ndigbo to join the national grid.
The ex-speaker further described PDP as Ichabod, adding that the glory had departed PDP.
He urged Senator Rochas Okorocha, Uche Nwosu, and Hope Uzodinma to form a common front for the task ahead.
