The Imo State All Progressives Congress (APC) Stakeholders on Thursday raised an alarm over the alleged appointment of a new committee led by Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (rtd.) to re-conduct the already held primary elections in the state, including governorship election, which they insist was won by Senator Hope Uzodinma, followed by the Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, with the Governor’s son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, at the rear.

According to a press release signed by the Chairman of the group, Chief Hillary Eke, and State Organising Secretary, Dr. Clement Anozie, Dambazau, Minister of Interior, at present, is in the United States of America.

The group wondered the motive behind “such deceitful move where even the stakeholders of the party, its aspirants and the members, are not notified of the purported re-scheduling, describing it as suspicious and smack of irregularities.”

The APC chieftains revealed that the purported primary election allegedly slated to hold to hold on Friday, October 5, 2018, is shrouded in fraud.

They said that it is worrisome to note that the unknown persons in the guise of committee came into the state with Governor Okorocha.

“We are never part of this fraud as the aspirants, stakeholders and the entire APC members were never notified of any re-scheduling, which ought to have been the first step should such ever be considered an option,” they said in the statement.

They also accused Governor Okorocha of hatching a grand plan to cause disaffection in the party with a view to destroying ‘our great party’, alleging that he has eloped to SDP with few of his supporters.
