The National Working Committee NWC of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has adopted Sen. Hope Uzodinma as the governorship candidate of the party for Imo state.
Concise News gathered that the final decision on the issue was taken during a meeting of the NWC held on Wednesday in Abuja.
Recall that the party leadership had asked the Imo state Governor, Rochas Okorocha to chose between his senatorial ambition and his desire to have his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu as his successor.
Accordingly, the party has concluded all arrangements to send the name of the senator to the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC ahead of the November 2 deadline for the submission of governorship candidates.
It was gathered that at the outcome of the meeting of the NWC, the party reviewed the conduct of primaries in the states especially in areas where there were challenges and decided to weigh its options before arriving at major decisions.
“Although, the chairman was summoned to the villa in the middle of the meeting, but the decision on Imo was almost unanimous. Hope Uzodinma is the man”, a source told Vanguard.
