Vanguard officials who visited office at about 18:45pm and kept vigil for the list to be pasted and at about 07:52pm reported that Uzodimma’s name was officially confirmed and pasted as the authentic governorship flag-bearer of APC, in Imo state
This is coming barely 10 hours, INEC, published other governorship candidates of other political parties, excluding that of APC.
Report gathered according to Vanguard immediately compelled the court to strike out the order by the Okorocha’s faction stopping Senator Uzodimma, from being published as the candidate of the party.
“The judgement was taken to the National headquarters of INEC, and an order was given that the name of Hope should be pasted immediately.
“When the order came, to INEC in Owerri, the administrative head was not on sit but the legal adviser received the order from the National headquarters and he went on. “They have just acted not as in their own power but according to the power of the court.”
