Uzodimma’s name was displayed at about 07:52 as the authentic governorship flag-bearer of the APC.

This came about after 10 hours after INEC had pasted 67 other governorship names of various political parties, excluding that of APC.

The electoral umpire did not add the name of the governorship candidate of APC, in Imo state on the list of governorship candidates it published earlier on Friday.

The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Emeka Ihedioha and 66 others were on the list, while that of the APC was seen missing.
