According to a statement issued by the Imo State Government, Uzodinma’s style of leadership made the APC attractive to the zone.
The statement said, “You may recall that Governor Hope Uzodimma was the only APC governor in the South-East and through his dogged and exemplary style of leadership attracted his Ebonyi State counterpart to dump the PDP for APC to compliment the vision of South-East for APC, and since then, Uzodimma has not rested on his oars to make South East an APC zone. By this recent move of the South-East APC leaders, the zone is set to benefit a lot from the party.”
