Others are Chinedu Offor, Kennedy Ibe, Lawman Duruji, Max Odunze, Henry Ezediaro, and Obinna Egu

Speaking after the notice of defection was read, one of the defectors, Amuka ,a former member of APC,accused the national chairman of the ruling party, Adams Oshiomhole of “collaborating with crooks to hijack APC in Imo state.”

The majority leader, Osuji,who equally joined AA, said that the APC national chairman meted grave injustice to them during the controversial APC primaries in the state.

He said that he felt ashamed that he was ever associated with APC.

Osuji who still maintained his status as the majority leader after the defection said that the lawmakers would team up with the AA governorship candidate in the state, Uche Nwosu, to win the governorship election and ensure that President Muhammadu Buhari won reelection.

Agbim,who joined AA from PDP said himself and two other of his colleagues, left the main opposition party because of the emergence of new PDP in the state.

He said that currently, PDP in the state had no leadership direction forcing them to join AA in order to ensure that Nwosu and Buhari won elections.

The speaker said that what “Oshiomhole did in Imo state was injustice and against the tenets of ideal democracy.”

He said that the lawmakers would work for the electoral success of Buhari and AA governorship candidate in the state, Nwosu
