The All Progressives Congress (APC) has stepped up moves to convince more governors from the South East region to join the party.

VANTAGE NEWS learnt that the party is primarily targeting the governors of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu and his Anambra counterpart, Willy Obiano.

Although it seems wooing Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu state might be difficult, the APC is set to try their luck by capitalising on the imminent defection of the Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi to the party.

A source told VANTAGE NEWS the APC Caretaker Committee led by the Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, had directed the party’s leaders in the South-East to reach out to more governors and members of House of Assembly in the region.

As reported by VANTAGE NEWS, Dave Umahi has already informed the PDP leadership that he plans to defect to the APC, citing marginalisation of the zone and the plan not to zone the 2023 presidency to the region.
