The Governor of Imo, Hope Uzodimma has assured that more South-East governors would join the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, soon.
Speaking on the planned defection of Ebonyi State Governor, Uzodinma said that the deal is already sealed.
The Governor made this known while addressing newsmen after meeting with the Chairman of the Caretaker/ Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni at the ruling party’s national secretariat in Abuja
According to him, “if you recall when I addressed you here couple of months ago, I told you that the moment I resume office in Imo State as the governor, that the impression and the perception of our party in South East will change and the resultant effect will be that more credible individuals and governors will even join the party.
“Today I am being vindicated because we are hearing it and I’m sure few hours from now we get a confirmation that one of our best will be joining the party and is the Governor of Ebonyi State.
“Of course, I will be very glad and it will be my joy to welcome a governor and more governors, not only him, we are still talking more governors to join.”
He said that for the interest of national integration, South East should become part of the ruling party to make the Nigerian project successful.
