0

An APC governorship aspirant in Imo State, Barr Chima Anozie, has asked his supporters to disregard reports about the adoption of indirect primary by the state chapter of the party.
He said the stakeholders of the party in the state are yet to take a position on the mode for the primary.
Speaking with newsmen after obtaining his expression of interest and nomination form, Anozie said that the State APC stakeholders have not met to take a position on the mode of primary for the elections.
The Imo State APC, under the chairmanship of Chidi Nwafor had met on Thursday in Owerri and announced that it has adopted indirect primary to elect its candidates.
But Anozie, who was the first aspirant from Imo to pick him form ahead of the elections maintained that the State can only take a position in a meeting that would be attended by all the stakeholders from both factions.
“I want to make it known here that the Imo APC has not taken any position on its mode of primary for electing candidates for our elections.I am an aspirant, I have bought my expression of interest and nomination form for the governorship election at the cost of N22.5m.
“Can you say I am not a stakeholder in the party? Who are the stakeholders that met. This is about election and it is all about testing our popularity at the grassroots. Why then are we afraid of that aspect of our democracy?
“For the party to arrive at a position of the process, all the stakeholders must be in agreement as directed by the National leadership of our party. If not, Imo APC would face serious crisis that may affect its performance in the 2019 elections,” he said.
