Ugwumba Uche Nwosu one of the guber aspirants in Imo APC has come out to say that any media house reporting that his name has been dropped by the National Working Committee, NWC, of the party, is doing a hatchet job.
He said this while speaking with reporters in Owerri.
“Apart from available records, which showed that I am the authentic governorship candidate of our party, I also have a valid Court Order barring the party and INEC from substituting my name. So, the media house reporting that is obviously sponsored to do a hatchet job”, Nwosu told Newsmen.
The son-in-law to the Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, also said that he is the only recognized candidate of the Imo State APC guber polls by the Court and INEC and that the formerly held primaries by Ahmed Gulakwas considered null and void.
“There are no contentions to my victory at the Imo State governorship primary election. What we have in the records is that the governorship candidate of APC in Imo State is Uche Nwosu, not only that I have a valid Court Order barring the party and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from receiving any other name that is not my name. There is no contention in that, the only primary that was upheld was that of Agbabiaka, which I won and everybody knew it was the authentic primary. The earlier primary that was to be conducted by Ahmed Gulak was cancelled and disbanded and a new Committee was reconstituted. So, Gulak never conducted any governorship primary, the only primary that was done in Imo State is the one conducted by Agbabiaka which I won.”
The Court and INEC are however, yet to announce a candidate for the party in Imo State.
