Raapour Hotels Updates: (12:29pm) As at this point the hall is filled up to the brim and it is obvious that all veterans are on the side of Conac Umez and his faction.
More than 300 members are alread6 seated and the presence of the likes of, Tony Chukwu, Big Dady (Elleged to have stepped down for Nneoma Ukpabi) is so obvious here as most of the old members could be spotted here.
12:42pm: At rapour hotels, reading of manifestos has commenced in the hall which will be considered as super packed. The condition here is too hash as the air conditioners are not working.

#AGN IMO FACTS: people like Mopol, Ogali Best who were previously detained in police station during the previous fracas, are now against Conac Umez again. AGN in Imo in the last two Yeats have always had factions and after making peace recently, they will bounce back to the same page of factions.
