2019 is coming and the cross carpeting has started!

A former Governor of Enugu state, Sullivan Chime has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Chime's move is seen to be a preparatory ground for an imminent political war between him and the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.

Both politicians had before the 2015 general elections engaged in one of the heaviest political battles in the State as Chime planned to unseat Ekweremadu in the Senate.

The ex-governor later withdrew as Ekweremadu gained the upper hand.

Although Chime has not made his defection public, spokesman of the APC in the South-East, Hyacinth Ngwu confirmed the move.

Ngwu wrote on his Facebook page: “Breaking News: Today, His Excellency Barr. Sullivan Iheanacho Chime, immediate past governor of Enugu State, joins APC."
