Former Governor of Imo State and Senator representing Imo West Senatorial Zone, Owelle Anayo Rochas Okorocha is set to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
This revelation was made by Senator Samuel Anyanwu while speaking to newsmen over the weekend.
Senator Anyanwu, a former Lawmaker disclosed that some Imo lawmakers of the All Progressives Congress have started negotiating to join the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state.
Anyanwu said this concerning the future of PDP and the state in 2023.
He said: “If national and state Lawmakers are secretly negotiating for a come-back into PDP, those already in the party should see their membership as a privilege to remain loyal and dedicated to party rules.
Over the past year, the All Progressives Congress in Imo State has been besieged by internal rancour, which has seen former Governor Rochas Okorocha fighting for his political life.
The former Governor had gone ahead to set up a parallel Party structure led by Dan Nwafor, which has been declared illegal and void by the party national leadership.
Okorocha who disclosed to newsmen last week that he has been unable to enrol in the massive revalidation exercise of the APC, has been accused of anti-party activities, chief among which is the attempt to destabilize the party before his move into the PDP.
Former Governor Rochas Okorocha began his political career in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, where he contested in the party Governorship primaries in 1999. Okorocha lost to Achike Udenwa who would go on to become a two-time governor of Imo state.
