The All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in Imo State says its attention has been drawn to the fake news being peddled on social media with the impression of misleading the public and throwing a spanner in the wheels of the party’s vehicle.
In a statement signed by its Chairman in Imo state, Hon John Iwuala which was sighted by The Eastern Updates, the party stated that the fake news which claimed that a Federal High Court sitting in Awka has declared Chief Edozie Njoku as the authentic National Chairman of APGA as well as ordering the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to recognize him as same, is being speculated by enemies of the party who do not wish well for the party.

According to the party leadership, it contradicts the pronouncement of the court in the matter and those peddling such fake news are committing a serious offence.
The State Chapter of APGA called on all the party faithful, supporters, and the general public to disregard the rumour.
The APGA release partly stated, ‘As your state Chairman in the state could have opted to ignore responding to such baseless and unwarranted fake news as it is not in my usual character to engage with charlatans and roadside political jobbers in social media rantings. But in order to disseminate the right and comprehensive information to the public, most especially, the good people, members, supporters and teeming APGA faithfuls in Imo State, I wish to respond.
‘I am also not unaware that in so many occasions, the said Chief Edozie Njoku supporters would feed people (mostly their sympathisers) with such fake news thereby forcing them to start celebrating an unachievable victory where at the end these unsuspecting Imolites, mostly from Aboh Mbaise LGA will end up wasting their hard-earned money on a fake court judgement’.
