A former governor of Imo state, Emeka Ihedioha, on Saturday, said his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, would defeat the ruling All Progressives Congress during the 2023 presidential election.
Ihedioha whose reign as governor was cut short through a Supreme Court judgment, also said the PDP would take over the state at the next election.
Ihedioha, who spoke during the fourth anniversary of Egbu declaration which held in Owerri, said Imo remained a PDP state.
He said, “I want to assure you that I remain committed to the ideas of my people. We will take over Nigeria from APC the same way they took over from us. It is legitimate. I thank all our people who have remained steadfast. Hopefully, we will bounce back.”
The senator representing Imo East, Ezenwa Onyewuchi, said that Owerri zone would produce the next governor of the state
