We conducted Okigwe Zone Senate APC Primaries and a Winner emerged in the person of Frank Ibezim, someone went and brought a court order from Ekeonunwa market against the victory, we shall see by today if that court order will cross Ariaria market — #Gov. Uzodinma”
12 hours before the senatorial bye election in Okigwe zone, Imo state the power tussle between the two APC Chieftains Gov. Hope Uzodinma and Senator Ifeanyi Araraume have continued.
The latest is that the two political gladiators Senator Ifeanyi Araraume and Frank Ibezim have divided Imo APC into two as they have continued to campaign differently.
According to Intelligent reports reaching our newsdesk, it is clear that Governor Hope Uzodinma has finally given his blessing to Frank Ibezim who was alleged to have won the APC senatorial primaries in Okigwe zone before Araraume snatched the ticket in the court.
Mgbeke media learnt that the Governor and his team declared their support and commitment to Frank Ibezim even when the High Court had directed INEC to substitute Ibezim with Araraume.
Araraume was favored by the federal high court as the authentic APC candidate but Ibezim and others went to court and appealed against the federal high court judgment but the appeal court is yet to release the judgment..
The final ruling of the court would be spelt out today and our hands are crossed to see what that verdict would be and how it would affect the APC party in Owerri.
Also note that a similar case also happened in Rivers-State where the former Governor Rotimi Amaechi and Senator Magnus Abe had a clash on the Governorship candidate for the APC. The result was a divided Party which was a major contributor to the land slide victory that the opposition party (PDP) enjoyed..
Are we looking at another division in Imo or would this transcend to something else?
If the ruling goes against Ararume,
does this mean that he’s always have been unlucky with elections or is it Just bad luck?
Recall he moved from PDP to APC, from APC to APGA, and from APGA back to APC. He has fought the former governor of Imo state, Ikedi Ohakim in APGA and Rochas in APC now he is fighting very dirty with the current Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma.
Does this mean that former senator Ifeanyi Ararume is desperate?
or Does this mean his Inconsistency is fighting back?
Stay tuned with Mgbeke as we follow this story to the end..
