The committee has the Secretary to the State Government, SGI, Cosmas Iwu, as the chairman and Love Ineh, who is the commissioner for Housing, as the Secretary.

The purpose for which they agreed on the consensus candidate was that, “The leaders of the party have agreed that we have a consensus candidate and avoid the rancour and bickering that follow the process of primaries.

“That we also want to go into the bye-election as a united body fighting for a common interest. We don’t want the aspirants to spend so much of their resources and at the end of the day, one person will still emerge.

“After all this, we agreed with the governor that we should go for a consensus candidate so that all the aspirants can come together and pick one person.”

However, all the APC senatorial aspirants from Imo North Senatorial district were at the meeting but Senator Ifeanyi Araraume was absent
