The member representing Mbaitoli-Ikeduru Federal Constituency, Rt Hon Henry Nwawuba, alongside members representing Aboh Mbaise-Ngor Okpala Federal Constituency, Rt Hon Bede Eke, and member representing Owerri West-Owerri North-Owerri Municipal Federal Constituency, Hon Ikenna Elezieanya, amongst others, have joined the Imo APC.

The trio joined the league of progressives in Imo APC in a grand reception held in their honours at the Ndubuisi Kanu Square, Owerri, and were received by the Imo State chairman of the party, Dr MacDonald Ebere, in the presence of the APC National Vice Chairman, South East, Dr Ijeomah Arodiogbu.

The treble defection gave the Imo PDP and the Imo APGA a bloody nose as Rt Hon Henry Nwawuba and his colleagues moved to the Imo APC with galaxies of over 1000 leaders of the PDP and APGA from their various constituencies, inclusive of House of Assembly candidates of other political parties in the just concluded 2023 elections, LGA and Ward officers of the PDP and APGA, most particularly, and bands of their grassroot supporters.

This mass exodus no doubt has caused ripple effects and severe depletion of the camps of the opposition parties in the state as Imo APC is positioned to relish the gains of their loses.

Dr MacDonald Ebere who could not contain his joy expressed optimism that the fortunes of the Imo APC is now more brightened more than ever especially with the entrance of the 3 big fishes and values they are bringing to the APC.
