The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma, has been expelled from the party with immediate effect.
This was contained in a statement by the state chairman of the party Daniel Nwafor in Owerri the state capital on Thursday, January 24.
According to Nwafor, the party made the decision to save it from further disintegration and electoral misfortunes.
“Senator Hope Uzodinma has been sponsoring the All Progressives Grand Alliance Senatorial candidate, Senator Osita Izunaso instead of the APC Senatorial candidate in Imo West, Governor Rochas Okorocha .”
“He has also been running parallel exco in his Omuma ward and issuing party cards without recourse to party excos.”
A statement jointly signed by Nwafor, and the Secretary, Obioma Ireagwu, read, “this is to inform you that the All Progressives Congress, Omuma Ward of Oru East Local Government Area in Imo State has expelled Senator Hope Uzodinma from the party due to certain inordinate and anti-party activities perpetrated by him and his cohorts.”
