APC Crisis In Imo Deepens As Party Chieftains Threaten Mass Defection To PDP

The All Progressives Congress (APC) stakeholders in Imo state are holding discussions with the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Emeka Ihedioha, with the aim of supporting the party if Senator Hope Uzodinma fails to clinch the governorship ticket of the party for 2019.

Vanguard reports that the party that the stakeholders were united in their resolution that all Imo people must unite to defeat Rochas Okorocha and his in-law dynasty.

Source gathered that in the event of Uzodinma being chosen as the flag bearer of the party, he would still run with the current deputy governor, Prince Eze Madumere, as his deputy.

The party leaders are sad to be in Abuja, as the two controversial primaries ordered by the national leadership of the party had failed to produce an acceptable candidate for both the Okorocha and Madumere factions

Some aggrieved members of APC had dragged the party’s national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiohmole and others to court over the second primary which produced Okorocha’s son in-law, Uche Nwosu as the flag bearer.
