A good number of frontline politicians in All Progressive Congress, APC Imo State chapter, especially members of the immediate past State Executive were not physically seen during the party’s rally held at Heros square, new Owerri Wednesday 22nd of December 2021.

The Eastern Updates observed that the rally was “boycotted” by aggrieved party members who are no longer happy with the way they alleged the Governor, Hope Uzodinma is handling the affairs of the party in the State.

The past Exco members alleged that they were not paid for nearly two years until they vacated office a few months ago.

The Governor as was gathered promised to pay them a week before the congress and as soon as the congress was concluded, the Governor closed his door and right now the immediate past APC State Exco members are in pains over the ill-treatment meted on them by the Governor. Some of the unpaid Exco members have taken their protest to Abuja.

One of the aggrieved members who spoke to reporters but pleaded anonymity regretted why Governor Uzodinma should abandon the past Exco and decide to pay a huge amount of money to the new exco members led by Dr Macdonald Ebere. Those who were shortchanged at the congress from the ward, Local Government Area to the State levels were not also present. Another aggrieved group that did not show up are the members of the cabinet that were dismissed.

After announcing the names of new Commissioners, Imo APC began to fall apart as those who were not favoured in the new cabinet reshuffle became very angry and planned to carpet cross to the opposition parties.

One of the allied Groups, the Coalition group already have started planning to join another party, preferably the PDP.

The only group that was physically seen at the rally was the CampHope movement who came in their numbers. While at the rally, the aspirants and their supporters came out to show some capacity and the former OCDA general manager, Hon Engr Innocent Ikpamezie took the centre stage and was able to move around to signal Mbaike people that he will be coming out for the federal constituency job in 2023.
