The party also passed a vote of confidence on Mr. Emeka Ihedioha, the sacked governor, in the face of his predicament, assuring that PDP, Ahiazu chapter will always support him even as the party pursues the review of the judgment of the Supreme Court that replaced him with Hope Uzodinma.

“We pledge our unflinching support to Imo State PDP and the national leadership of PDP led by Uche Secondus. In the same vein, we condemn in strong terms the defection of the member, representing Ahiazu Local Government Area in Imo House of Assembly, Sam Otuibe from our party to APC, whereas Otuibe did not consult our party and leadership before this illegal act. And whereas our party has no crisis in the LGA, state nor at the national level, we have decided to commence the recall process of Sam Otuibe,” the party said.
