Okigwe Senate Ticket: Substitution Scare Hits Imo APC

Listen to article

Even as the name of the candidate who finally won the APC Okigwe zone primaries that took place three weeks has not been made public, suspense has enveloped the entire zone over suspicion related to the substitution of a candidate’s name.

The Eastern Updates reliably learnt that after the controversy that characterised the conduct of the primaries, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has only received a name of a candidate to beat the deadline created for submission of names.

Available information has it that it was the name of Frank Ibezim that was submitted to INEC following an acknowledgement letter of the electoral body made public on the social media. However, while it is believed that the name of Ibezim is in INEC records,
The Eastern Updates learnt that reports of change of name of the candidate may secretly be undertaken.

Feelers have it that Senator Ifeanyi Araraume who also emerged victorious through the result released by a faction of the committee raised to conduct the primaries may have his name used to substitute that of Ibezim.

The Eastern Updates also reliably gathered that underground moves were on to have Ibezim’s name removed for Araraume. High powered political scheming in Abuja and the national party office are said to be on to ensure that the name of Ibezim does not see the light of the day as the party’s candidate for the Okigwe zone election.
