The governorship candidate of the Action Alliance in Imo State, Uche Nwosu, on Monday told the Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Owerri that he was never the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the state.

Nwosu, who was being cross-examined by the Peoples Democratic Party counsel, Ken Njemanze said that the judgement of a Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday voiding his nomination as the AA governorship candidate would not stand.

Nwosu said he was not aware of the case and that he was neither a candidate of APP nor APC.

According to Nwosu, he had in his possession a judgment of the Supreme Court which affirmed him as the government candidate of AA in the state.
