Eighteen members of the Imo State House of Assembly including the Speaker, Acho Ihim, have defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party.
The lawmakers left their parties to join another party, Action Alliance (AA).
We have to remain strong and restrategise to cover up for the loss, it’s politics. We have to unite in our party and remain focus so we can win the general elections come 2019.”
The PDP leadership has yet to react to the defection of its lawmakers in the House.
