“They have seen the light”—–APC reacts as speaker, others defect to the party


Following the defections that hit the Imo State house of assembly, Spokesperson for  All Progressive Congress (APC), Lanre Issa-Onilu has said the defection of some members of the house including the speaker  Collins Chiji is because “they have seen the light”. 

ICRR reports that the spokesman described the defection as a welcome development as long as they abide by the tenet of the party.

“Anybody who sees the light is expected to follow it and I think they have seen the light and they are welcome to the party,” he said

Onilu added that he knows that the new members are certain about the rules and regulations of the party.

Since Hope Uzodinma was sworn-in to office, massive defection has hit the People’s Democratic Party( PDP) in Imo State as members of the party continue to defect to the ruling APC, the party incumbent governor Hope Uzodinma was elected under.
