Imo APC is divided into two major factions with Nlemigbo led team enjoying support from the state governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, at the expense of Nwafor who is strongly backed by former governor Okorocha. Trumpeta recalls that after Nwafor was sacked, a Marcon Nlemigbo Caretaker Committee came on board.
