Ebonyi State Deputy Governor, Eric Igwe has joined his principal in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Naija News learnt that Eric took the bold step as members and leaders of APC gathered together today to welcome Umahi to the ruling party in the country
“Where you go I will go, where you stand, I will stand,” Igwe said.
However, Umahi in his defection speech at the ceremony announced that “henceforth, Ebonyi is 100% APC. We are all moving to APC.”
Umahi had earlier on Tuesday, November 27 dumped PDP for APC after weeks of speculation that he had taken the decision to dump the opposition party for the ruling party.
He also faulted the claims that he left the PDP to achieve his ambition of becoming the president in 2023.
Dignitaries present at the event include former Senate President Ken Nnamani; Chairman, APC National Caretaker Committee who is also the governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni; Jigawa State Governor, Muhammadu Badaru Abubakar; Kebbi State Governor, Abubakar Bagudu and Niger State Governor, Abubakar Bello, among others.
