The Flag-Off of All Progressives Congress APC party gubernatorial election campaign will hold today Saturday 16-09-2023 at the popular Heroes Square now Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu square Owerri.
The Party leadership has sent out a release directing all invited guests including the party Leadership, polling booth officers, government functionaries to attend the event slated to kickstart by 11am today.
Meanwhile, the massive trend of defection of party membership from other political parties into the leading All Progressives Congress APC have sent gripping signals to the opposition gubernatorial candidates having known the advantages and powers of incumbency as 9News Nigeria reports.
9News investigative team has projected the incumbent Governor who happens to be the gubernatorial candidate of APC, Hope Uzodinma as the would -ben winner of the November Guber Election in Imo following the defection of party membership and stakeholders into the APC family.
The November Guber election will be held simultaneously in three states namely Imo Bayelsa and Kogi state by the schedule of the election umpire INEC.
In Imo state, electorates are eager and keenly interested in participating in the upcoming election match between the incumbent Governor Hope Uzodinma and others.
The People’s Democratic Party PDP and labour Party LP governorship candidates, Senators Samuel Anyanwu and Athan Achonu are two major contenders against the incumbent Governor Hope Uzodinma.
Our political investigative team reports that Governor Hope Uzodinma may likely win the election having two advantages over his incumbent rivals which are, featuring a female running mate in the person of Lady Ekomaru and exercising the power of incumbency.
It is worthy of note that the feature of Lady Chinyere Ihuoma Ekomaru as running mate cum Deputy Governor to Uzodinma automatically represents the inclusivity of the affirmative quota of women in the governance circle and this is what the women have advocated from the onset as 9News Nigeria reports.
The unity brought in the APC party through continued reconciliation of power brokers amongst them is another factor that will likely give APC edge over other contenders in Imo state.
In addition, Bayelsa and Kogi will not be as tough as Imo state because of the existing leadership format already established. In the aforementioned states, Bayelsa will likely give in for APC while Kogi state will muscle it out with the PDP as gathered.
