David Umahi of Ebonyi State and the Peoples Democratic Party Governor is expected to dump the party this week for the All Progressives Congress.
A source disclosed that Governor Umahi confirmed his plan to join the opposition party during a meeting with stakeholders in Uburu Ohaozara Local Government Area of the state on Sunday.
The meeting was attended by bigwigs including the lawmaker representing Ezra South/Ikwo federal constituency Chinedu Ogah, Chairman of the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission Elias Mbam, State Chairman Senator Julius Ucha, Nwachukwu Eze and Senator Anthony Agbo, among others.
The Minister of Science and Technology, Ogbonnaya Onu, was, however, absent at the meeting.
The source added that the Governor during the meeting also promised to reshuffle his executive council in December to accommodate members of the APC.
“He did not give us the exact date he will officially defect but he was categorical that it will happen this week,” the source said.
