Ambrose Nwogwugwu, the former Imo State Peoples Democratic Party’s Director General of New Media has dumped his darling party for the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
The former PDP spokesman, who garnered much popularity due to his incessant attacks on the Hope Uzodinma-led government, said that he took the bold step after being unceremoniously relieved of his duty by his former party, PDP.
You will recall that He was arrested and thrown into prison by Gov Hope Uzodimma on the allegation that he was harshly criticising the administration of Uzodimma and constantly addressed the governor as “Supreme court” governor.
As at the time Ambrose Nwogwugwu was fighting for PDP and attacking Hope Uzodimma, he was the DG New Media, Imo state PDP. After the arrest and subsequent release by the court, Ambrose Nwogwugwu became popular. Very popular and from the information reported by the media, the state Publicity Secretary of PDP Imo state relieved him from his post due to his rising profile.
The Imo state PDP began to defund the department of New Media which Ambrose was heading and eventually scrapped the directorate of new media.
But why that was happening, the same APC government that arrested and almost jailed Nwogwugwu took the advantage, wooed him with enticing offers and today, the young man has announced his defection to APC.
Presently, he has announced that Hope Uzodimma is the best thing to have happened to Imo state and thanked the Supreme court for giving Ndi Imo Hope.
Meanwhile, his defection has elicited reactions from the public. While some have criticized him for licking his own wound, others have hailed him for taking a bold step.
