Imo Guber: Okorocha loses as APC submits Uzodinma’s name
The furore over who will fly the flag of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 governorship election in Imo State might have been put to rest following the submission of the name of Senator Hope Uzodinma as the candidate of the party.
Impeccable sources close to the party in the state confided in Daily Trust that the party accepted the result of the Ahmed Ahmed Gulak committee which declared Uzodinma winner of the October 1 primary in preference to the October 6 rescheduled election held by the Ibrahim Agbabiaka panel that declared Uche Nwosu winner.
When our correspondent visited the state office of INEC yesterday, a source said the list was yet to be made public.
In a related development, a Federal High Court sitting in Owerri presided over Justice M.T. Salihu, also yesterday granted an Order of Interim Injunction restraining the APC and its National Organizing Secretary, Hon Emma Ibediro, from submitting any other name other than that of Uche Nwosu for the purpose of conducting an election into the office of governor of Imo State pending the determination of the motion in notice.
