Chidi Samuel| Not less than nine members of the Imo state house of assembly have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
House speaker, Colins Chiji, read their defection letters at Tuesday’s plenary.
Those that defected from the PDP, are Chyna Iwuanyanwu (Nwangele), Chidiebere Ogbunikpa(Okigwe), Heclus Okorocha (Ohaji/Egbema), Paul Emeziem (Onuimo).
Those from AA are Authur Egwim (Ideato north), Obinna Okwara (Nkwerre), Johnson Duru (Ideato South), and Ngozi Obiefule (Isu) while Ekene Nnodimele (Orsu) moved from APGA to APC.
The supreme court last Tuesday affirmed Hope Uzodinma of the APC as the duly elected governor of Imo state and sacked Emeka Ihedioha who was declared the winner of last year’s election by INEC.
