…insists that Frank Ibezim never participated in the APC Senate Primaries
The contested candidate of the APC in the Okigwe Senate Bye-election, Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, have slammed Senator Hope Uzodinma, the Imo State Govenror, over his faulty management of the state.
Araraume made the statement, while reacting to questions from an AIT correspondent, over the Okigwe APC legal impasse.
Araraume stated that Ibezim was never a participant of the APC Primaries, stating that Ibezim was disqualified by the Screening Committee and appeal Committee of the party.
Araraume further stated that Ibezim was sacked on the eve of the election, by a Federal High Court, and he did not appeal the sack before the election.
Araraume frowned at Uzodinma for celebrating and commissioning a 500 meter road, which collapsed within days of commissioning, urging the Govenror to let the people speak for him.
He further wondered how the people would speak for the Govenror, when pensioners were being flogged in the state, and lawmakers were being detained.
The APC is believed to have won the Okigwe Senate Bye-election, but the party is embroiled in confusion over who is the authentic candidate of the party.
