A statement issued on Saturday, by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Sam Onwuemeodo explained that disagreements with the APC leadership were bound to arise and advised the National Publicity Secretary on the need to exercise caution in order not to create a wrong impression.

He warned against castigating governors, who worked for the party from the onset, insisting that Issa-Onilu misfired by doing so and had sent a bad signal to the world.

Okorocha however, advised Issa-Onilu to acquaint himself with proper information on the Imo APC case to avoid feeding the public with falsehood that might snowball into a conflagration.

He recalled that Oshiomhole cancelled the results of the primary conducted by Ahmed Gulak-led committee and set up a new committee headed by Ibrahim Agbabiaka, which conducted a fresh primary.

According to the governor, “the governorship primary conducted by the Agbabiaka- led committee threw up Uche Nwosu as the APC candidate in the state”.
