Chiji Collins, Imo Speaker Set To Join APC by dre11(m): 8:29am On Jan 24
Palpable tension seems to have gripped the Speaker of Imo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Chiji Collins as to what action he will take next to save his speakership position which is currently under serious threat.

Chiji Collins who jumped ship from the All Progressives Grand Alliance to the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party to secure his seat having hailed from Okigwe zone is contemplating decamping to the APC.

The Speaker at the first plenary of the year on Tuesday witnessed the defection of nine of his colleagues from various parties to the APC to seek refuge.

Meanwhile, speculations are rife that Chiji Collins, in a matter of days, will follow suit.

Pundits argue he will lose the bid whether or not he defects to the ruling APC because there is a standing APC lawmaker from Ehime Mbano state constituency, although a first-timer.

Similarly, the Deputy Speaker of the House, Okey Onyekanma on same Tuesday, resigned of his position, conforming the arrangement that the deputy speakership must come from the governor’s zone.

Okey Onyekanma is representing Mbaitoli and Chiji Collins Isiala Mbano constituencies respectively.

When Peter Obi was governor, he worked with an opposition controlled legislature even in the face of impeachment and it was successfull, I don't understand why our governors like running zombie government.

If this was going on in Southwest

Some kids would have jumped on the thread with their regular Afonja chants.

But we all know how they will respond to this.

Why Are You So Much Pained? Did You Think It Is Easy To Impeach A Governor? What Offence Will They Charge Him With As The Reason For Impeaching Him? Hold Yourself Mek You No Go Die For Politician Matter. In The The Next Few Months, You Will See Uzodinma And Ihedioha Hugging And Merrying Together And You Are Here Dying.

The welfare of his constituency should be his main priority, not party fraternization, or occupying the toppest seat in the house, but politics in Nigeria has been cajoled the other way round, lawmakers reason their pocket first before any other fin. the people that voted were not stupid to vote you as a candidate of PDP.....

There are many shameless politicians in Nigeria. Food is ready politicians. Are you aware that lekki Port will begin operations in 2022? Buy plots of land at Ibeju Lekki now that it is still very cheap and resell in 2022. Click on the links on my signature for details.

Thanks sir. Remain blessed.
If only more people can have a correct expectation of our politicians, we will not be running across the Sahara desert to enter Europe.

He already got some APC states in the Middle Belt,

APC had no state in the South East until Buhari used Tanko to remove the choice of Ndi Imo so that APC will have one state in the S/E in case of 2023
