The All Progressives Congress Stakeholders have raised alarm over alleged appointment of a new committee led by Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau to re-conduct already held primary elections in the State.

It could be recalled that a primary governorship election has been held which produced Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodinma as the party’s flag bearer while the Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere came second with the Governor’s son in-law Uche Nwosu at the rear.

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

The group wondered the motive behind such a 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 group revealed that the purported primary election allegedly slated to hold to hold on Friday, October 5, 2018, is shrouded in secrecy which to them smacks of 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, adding that the move it nothing but to destabilize the party in the state.

In their resolution, they submitted; “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 as option”.

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.
