The Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Imo, Mr Peter Ezeobi, says the party has yet to take a decision on the outcome of the March 9  governorship election in the state. 

 Ezeobi made the remark in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Owerri, while reacting to a comment credited to the party’s Secretary, Mr Alphonsus Eberendu, that the party had conceded defeat.

The APGA chairman said that contrary to Eberendu’s position, the party would announce its decision after due consultation with relevant stakeholders.

He said that neither the secretary nor the chairman had powers to take decisions on behalf of the party without due consultation.

“The true position is that the election has come and gone; we, as a party and other stakeholders, will take a critical decision on the way forward.

“When that is done, we will tell the world,” he said.

NAN reports that Sen Ararume, APGA Governorship Candidate polled 114,674 votes to come third in the Imo election won by Chief Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Ihedioha polled 273,404 votes to defeat his closest contender, Uche Nwosu of the Action Alliance who scored 190,364 votes.   (NAN)
