A former Imo State Governor, Chief Ikedi Ohakim has officially defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ohakim had initially denied media reports that he was nursing plans to join the APC only a few hours before he defected to the ruling party.
The former Governor defected to the APC at Okohia, in Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State and was welcomed by party officials.
OBSERVERS TIMES recall that Chief Ohakim served as the governor of Imo State between 2007 and 2012 under the platform of the Peoples Progressive Party (PPA).
He later dumped the PPA and joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and has now pitched his tent with the APC.
Ohakim said President Buhari has done so much for Ndigbo and that every Igbo home and abroad should join APC as that is the only way Igbo Presidency will be achieved.
