But Ngwu swiftly fired back at Chime's critics with another post.
It read: "I wonder how some of the opposite politicians talk. If their member is questioned by EFCC or ICPC or invited by the Police, they will shout to the heavens, 'victimisation, oppression of political opponents'.
"But when the same person defects to (APC), a better party with vision for Nigeria, they roar that the same defected to avoid interrogation by EFCC, ICPC or the Police. Haba, which way my people?"
When contacted by DAILY POST for more clarifications, Ngwu said discussions were still on going. He was not exact on when Chime would formally defect to the party.
As of the time of filling this report, a text message sent to Chime's then Chief Press Secretary, Barr. Chukwudi Achife has not been responded to.
