Former PDP State Chairman, Chief Charles Ezekwem who reportedly dumped the People’s Democratic Party, PDP to support the state governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma, seems to have abandoned CampHope for Senator Ifeanyi Araraume’s Destiny Camp.
Ezekwem who was initially supporting Uzodimma’s preferred candidate for Okigwe senatorial bye-election according to sources was visibly present at the residence of Araraume where he declared his loyalty to the Dan Nwafor -led APC.
Those who claim to know Chief Ezekwem’s antecedents told our correspondent that they were not surprised at his decision to dump Uzodimma for Senator Araraume, alleging that what he did is his known trademark having in their word: “Dealt with former Governor Ikedi Ohakim and Rt Hon. Emeka Ihedioha.”
According to them, he defected to the All Progressives Congress, even as Chairman of Imo State Sports Council and State Chairman of PDP, positions that were given to him by Ihedioha, without looking back.
Now, he has joined Senator Araraume despite being a beneficiary of Uzodimma’s magnanimity at the Sports Council, hoping that at the end of the day, he will join the Senator to enjoy the spoils of his victory.
