Imo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed the governorship primary election due to be held on Sunday.
The election will now come up on Monday.
Chief Press Secretary to Governor Rochas Okorocha, Sam Onwuemeodo, who confirmed this on telephone, did not give reasons for the postponement.
However our correspondent gathered that it could not be unconnected with horse traiding over who controls the members of the NWC sent to the state to conduct the exercise.
A member of the party, who spoke to our correspondent on the condition of anonymity said, ” The struggle is over who control the people sent to the state to conduct the primary election.
You and I know that in the previous ward elections, there were no election. Both the governor’s faction and the coalition know that there were no election.
Each party sat and wrote the results of the ward, local government and state congresses. So the struggle really is who controls the people from Abuja.
I bet you, there will be no election in Imo. What will happen will be a charade.”
