BEVERLY HILLS, November 09, (THEWILL) – The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Friday failed to publish any name as the governorship candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State.
This was noticed as the Commission displayed a provisional list of governorship candidates for the 2019 general election.
INEC’s refusal to publish any governorship candidate for the APC, may not be unconnected to a Court Order restraining it from accepting or publishing any name except the name of Uche Nwosu as the authentic governorship candidate.
It will be recalled that the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomole had forwarded the name of Hope Uzodinma to INEC as the party’s governorship candidate, in defiance of the Court Order, which was also served on him and the party.
Sixty seven candidates made the provisional list including, former Deputy Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha (PDP), Senator Ifeanyi Ararume (APGA).
