Imo APC gubernatorial primaries; Uche Nwosu claims

He pointed out that he also has a valid court order barring the party and INEC from substituting his name
- Nwosu insisted that the only primary that was done in Imo state was the one conducted by Agbabiaka, which he said he won
Uche Nwosu, the son-in-law to Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo, says his name has not been dropped as the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
Contrary to reports that the National Working Committee of the ruling party had adopted Senator Hope Uzodinma as its candidate, Nwosu insists that he remains the authentic governorship candidate of the party, The Sun reports.

Apart from available records which show 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.”
He continued: “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.”
