BREAKING: Heavy Crisis looms in APC as Court sacks Araraume as Imo North Candidate

A serious rift is looming with the Imo state chapter of the All progressives Congress, APC following an order by an appeal court sacking Ifeanyi Araraume as the candidate for the Party’s Imo North Candidate.

The judgment, which was delivered by Justice Uchechukwu Onyemenam, at a court sitting in Owerri on Fridy came barely 24 hours to the bye-election which holds on Saturday, December 5, in the 64 wards across the six Local Government Areas.

The justice, who delivered the judgment in a tense courtroom, declared Frank Ibezim as the authentic candidate of the APC ahead of the election. The justice faulted the November 6 judgment of the Federal High Court which sacked Ibezim and announced Araraume, who represented the district between 1999 and 2007 as the rightful winner of APC primary election.

The justice ordered INEC to immediately enlist Ibezim’s name as the candidate of the party for the bye-election.
