Ahead of the 2019 governorship election in Imo State, an aspirant, Ifeanyi Araraume and immediate-past national organising secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Osita Izunaso, yesterday, had a two-hour meeting with the national chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Victor Oye.

The two politicians, who are in a running battle with Governor Rochas Okorocha, arrived at the party secretariat in Abuja at about 1.30pm and headed straight to the office of APGA’s national chairman. They left at about 3.30pm.

Although Araraume didn’t address newsmen after the meeting, Daily Sun has, however, gathered that the senator may pick the nomination form to contest the governorship seat in Imo State tomorrow.

A source, who spoke with Daily Sun, said Araraume and Izunaso registered as members of APGA last week in their wards in the state. The source, however, declined to confirm if Izunaso has picked his senatorial nomination form.

Meanwhile, hundreds of aspirants have besieged the national headquarters of APGA in Abuja. The aspirants, predominantly from Imo, Anambra and Abia states, have picked nomination forms to contest various positions.

So far, Imo State is leading with over 30 aspirants, gunning for governorship, senatorial and House of Representatives seats. Imo State is followed by Anambra.

Ifeanyi Ubah, who was at the party secretariat yesterday to pick his senatorial form, said he will not step down for Bianca Ojukwu. Mrs Ojukwu, who is also contesting for the same Anambra South senatorial seat on the platform of APGA.
