Nwoye, who was the PDP governorship candidate in 2012, disclosed that their resolve to defect to the APC has been endorsed by former Vice President, Alex Ekwueme and other key leaders of the PDP in the state.

Nwoye said he and his loyalists were leaving the PDP because the party has lost direction.

Nwoye informed Oyegun that they were prepared to work closely with the APC leaders not only in the state and the South-East zone but in Nigeria as a whole.
