his development according to the governor became necessary after the governor disclosed that the Peoples Democratic Party hasn’t been fair to the people of South East as regards the zoning of presidency and vice presidency.
Reacting to the news while also making their intentions known, the Ebonyi caucus of the nations assembly disclosed that as democrats, they see nothing wrong in the governor defecting from PDP to APC.
The lawmakers Through Sam Ugwu who is currently the senator representing Ebonyi North disclosed that while the governor might have defected, none of the lawmakers who belongs to the Peoples Democratic Party will defect.
