Mr Collins Chiji defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), alongside Seven other lawmakers, during a plenary on Tuesday, January 28, 2020.

This is coming barely 24 hours after Imo PDP chairman, Charles Ezekwem resigned from the party and joined the ruling party, APC.

Apart from the speaker, others who announced their defection on Tuesday are Uche Ogbuagu (Ikeduru), Dominic Ezerioha (Oru West) Chigozie Nwaneri(Oru East), Kanayo Onyemaechi (Owerri West), Kennedy Ibe (Obowo) Onyemaechi Njoku (Ihitte/Uboma), and Eddy Obinna (Aboh Mbaise).

With the defections, APC now has 18 lawmakers with PDP having eight in the Imo State House of Assembly.
