‘APC is intact in Imo’
Commissioner for information and strategy in Imo State, Dr Theodore Ekechi, yesterday said the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Imo State is intact.
Ekechi who said no member of the party has defected from the party, told newsmen that the APC has continued to gain acceptance among both the elites and common people in the state. He disclosed that contrary to the claim of mass exodus from the party, the APC has been experiencing the influx of decampees from other parties as he said many of the executive members of the PDP have decamped to the APC in the last few months.
He said: “for instance in Ngor Okpala Local Government Area where I come from, 11 executive members dumped the PDP for the APC and it is the same across the state but we are not making noise about it”,
Ekechi, maintained that the gale of defection to the APC is an evidence that the party is intact in the state contrary to reports that it has lost grip of its structure.
He noted: “the reported crisis in APC shows that there is increasing interest in the party which is contrary to the insinuation that the party is dead in the state”.
The commissioner noted that the struggle for position in a political party is an index of a party that is doing well adding that APC as a political family is still intact as Imo remains the home of APC.
