The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole, has confirmed receiving a court order from the Chief Judge of Imo State, Justice K.A Ojiakor. 

According to Oshiomhole, the Chief Judge of the state instructed the party not to recognise any candidate that emerged from a repeat primary election conducted in the state on October 6, 2018.

The party’s chairman stated this to journalists in Abuja on Friday.

He said, “A court order issued by the Chief Judge of Imo State, where Governor Rochas Okorocha heads the executive branch and the Chief Judge heads the judicial branch.

“The judge in his wisdom having had prayers by those who appeared before him including the Deputy Governor of the state, Eze Madumere, who was the one that obtained the court order which directed me (Oshiomhole) not to have anything to do with any secondary or repeat primary, the governorship primary in Imo State”.

Mr Madumere was one of the aspirants for the governorship election in the first primary conducted on October 1, 2018, which Senator Hope Uzodinma was declared winner.

Oshiomhole insisted that the court order was made in a pre-emptive suit filed by his deputy (Madumere) challenging the directive for a second primary in which a former Chief of Staff to the state, Uche Nwosu was declared the winner.

“In line with the advice of my very dear friend, Rochas Okorocha, we will have nothing to do with the second governorship primary that allegedly produced his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu”, he added.

But Justice Ojiakor has ordered that no submission whatsoever should be made from the repeat primary pending the hearing and determination of the substantive motion on notice which has been fixed for November 6, 2018.

The National Chairman also reaffirmed Mr Dapo Abiodun as the candidate of the party in Ogun State.

He said, “Based on the rules of our party and in accordance with INEC guidelines, we have conducted governorship elections in Ogun State and submitted the name of the winner, Prince Dapo Abiodun, to INEC for the purpose of the forthcoming governorship election”.
