The leadership of Imo G-7 has initiated a strategic move aimed at bolstering the support base of the APC in Imo State. 

The group, comprising notable political figures, has embarked on a mission to attract thousands of former members of the Imo PDP who recently departed from the party.

In a pivotal step towards achieving this objective, the Imo G-7 delegation paid a visit to Rt. Hon. Ugonna Ozurigbo (OZB) at his residence in Owerri.

He commended Hon. Ozurigbo’s decision to sever ties with the PDP, applauding his courage in the face of adversity.

Looking ahead, the G-7 plans to expand its outreach to additional former leaders and members of Imo PDP, aiming to convey a message of hope and progress under the APC banner.
