In other news, a former Commissioner for Lands in Imo State, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, has urged the ex-governor of the state, Emeka Ihedioha, to join the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Ihedioha recently resigned his membership from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, stating that his personal beliefs and the current trajectory of the opposition party have become increasingly divergent.

The former Governor lamented recent developments within the PDP, noting that it has deviated from its core principles.

Reacting to the development in an interview with journalists, Nwosu, who served as Chief of Staff to ex-Imo governor Rochas Okorocha, urged Ihedioha and the other former Imo PDP chieftains to join the APC and work with Governor Hope Uzodimma to develop and grow the state.
