It was gathered that part of decisions reached was to collapse the entire South East geopolitical zone from PDP to APC as the only way to cede the party’s Presidential ticket to the region.

According to the insider source, the former Deputy Speaker, Rt Hon Ihedioha was asked to lead delegation to woo other PDP leaders in the South East to APC, while Chief Dokpesi in collaboration with the former President, Goodluck Jonathan were to do a thorough underground work in the South South zone.

When contacted on phone, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu confirmed the move, adding that the former Governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha would announce his defection to APC with his supporters immediately after their next meeting.
