'Real Reason Why I joined APC' - Martin Elechi

The immediate past governor of Ebonyi, Chief Martin Elechi, who recently defected to the All Progressive Congress (APC) from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has revealed the reason why he joined the party.

According to the two time governor of Ebony State, who registered for the APC at his country home in Echialike, Ikwo Local Government Area, in front of national party leaders – his love for the president was one of the reasons he decided to join APC.

He said; I decided to join APC due to my love for Buhari and the current state of the PDP occasioned by its protracted crisis.

“I knew Buhari 49 years ago when I started the movement for the creation of Ebonyi as he intervened during my arrest with nine other comrades, by officers of the defunct Nigerian Security Organisation (NSO).

“I was interrogated while standing for nine hours and he as the Brigade Major in Abakaliki at that time, ordered our immediate release.

“I thank God for his health as he had favoured the people of Abakaliki and will triumph in his onerous task of rescuing the country from misrule.’’

He added that Boko Haram and corruption issues could have been indescribable if God had not brought Buhari to power.
