Hope Uzodinma, the governor of Imo State and Senator Rochas Okorocha were at the House Of Representatives on Thursday to witness the defection of Kingsley Chima and Paschal Obi, both members of the house of representatives from Imo state from the Action Alliance (AA) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Chima, who represents Ohaji/Egbema/Oguta/Oru west federal constituency, and Obi of Ideato north/south federal constituency announced their decision at the house plenary session.
In separate letters read by Femi Gbajabiamila, the speaker, Chima and Obi said they were leaving the AA as a result of “irreconcilable issues” in the AA.
Both also said they decided to join the APC as “progressives” after all efforts to resolve the challenges in the AA failed.
This comes barely one month after the supreme court handed Mr. Uzodinma a shock victory, declaring him as the winner of the March 9, 2019 Imo governorship election.
