The immediate past chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State, Charles Ezekwem has defected to All Progressives Congress (APC).
This is coming barely twenty four hours after he dumped the former ruling party.
The defections in Imo State are trailing the emergence of Senator Hope Uzodinma as the new governor of the State following the judgment by the Supreme Court.
An official of APC described Ezekwem as a big catch.
He said: “We’ve shifted the celebration of Ezekwem’s defection to a later date because of the tragic death of one of us, Ndubuisi Emenike. But I can assure you Governor Hope Uzodinma will officially welcome Ezekwem into the party in a large ceremony.”
He added that a former senator on PDP platform would soon join APC to give credence to the fact the Imo is an APC state.
