The name of the governorship candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Imo state was missing from the list of cleared candidates released by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC on Friday.
INEC on Friday failed to publish any name as the governorship candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State as the Commission displays the 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), among others.
