The furore over who will fly the flag for the 2019 governorship election for the All Progressives Congressb (APC) in Imo state might have been put to rest following the submission of the name of Senator Hope Uzodinma as the governorship candidate of the party for the election. Already the news is creating tension in the state.
Impeccable source close to the party in the state confided in Daily Trust that the party accepted the results of the Ahmed Ahmed Gulak committee, which declared Uzodinma winner of the October 1 primaries in preference to October 6 rescheduled election held by the Ibrahim Agbabiaka panel that declared Uche Nwosu as winner.
When our correspondent visited the state office of the Independent National Electoral Commission yesterday, a source said the list was yet to be made public.
Meanwhile the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in the Abuja Judicial Division yesterday ordered the All Progressives Congress (APC) to show cause why it should not be committed to contempt for violating its earlier ruling not to submit any other name other than that of Uche Nwosu as the governorship candidate of the party for the 2019 election in Imo state.
The incumbent governor of the state and Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, Rochas Okorocha backed his son-in-law and his former Chief of Staff, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu for the ticket.
