The independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has pasted the name of Senator Hope Uzodimma as the authentic APC gubernatorial candidate in Imo State.
According to Vanguard, his name was published alongside the name of his running mate Akaolisa Cyprian Ikechukwu as running mate at the INEC Office along Portharcout Road Owerri.
INEC had pasted the names of candidates of other parties excluding that of APC because there was a court order not to declare Uzodimma as the candidate by the incumbent governor Okorocha’s faction.
A source revealed that,
Immediately, the court struck out the order by the Okorocha’s faction stopping the name of Senator Uzodimma, from publishing as the candidate of the party.
“The judgement was taken to the National headquarters of INEC, and an order was given that the name of Hope should be pasted immediately. “When the order came, to INEC in Owerri, the administrative head was not on sit but the legal adviser received the order from the National headquarters and he went on.
“They have just acted not as in their own power but according to the power of the court.”
