Ahmed Gulak, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship Primary Committee in Imo State has condemned the cancellation of the exercise.
Gulak said that the primary which took place on Tuesday had been concluded and an appeal was the only route open to those who were aggrieved.
He, however, insisted that contrary to the decision of the national leadership, the exercise reflected the position of his committee on the matter.
Gulak stated that the committee stands by the results released and urged the national leadership to support his committee’s decision.
National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, had sacked the Ahmed Gulak-led Committee and described the exercise as fake.
Oshiomhole also faulted the result of the election, noting that another committee will be set up immediately for the conduct of fresh primaries in the state.
The National Working Committee of the party has also suspended the governorship primary in the state indefinitely.
