He said this necessitated his move to the Action Alliance, pledging his support to President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We have no problem with President Buhari. Our problem is with the national leadership of the party which meted out on us injustice. We are in support of Buhari and we will deliver him in the State.
He expressed hope that the Action Alliance, AA will ensure President Buhari’s victory in the presidential election on February 16, 2019..

In his remarks, National Chairman of the AA, Kenneth Udeze said the AA is the party to beat in the forthcoming governorship election calling on the people of the State to vote for Uche Nwosu and other candidates of the party.
