Okorocha celebrates as court nullifies Imo APC congress


 OwerriA Federal High Court sitting in Owerri, yesterday, declared null and void the May 5 ward congress of the Imo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The court also nullified the consequent local government and state congresses of the party which saw a faction loyal to the deputy governor of the state, Eze Madumere and some senators having a field day with their candidates emerging as winners.
The High Court judgement, delivered by Justice Lewis Allagoa, was sequel to a suit filed by a faction of the party loyal to Governor Rochas Okorocha challenging the congress conducted by Madumere and others. 
The presiding judge, Justice Lewis Allagoa, in a judgement that lasted for one hour ordered APC to conduct fresh election in the state.
The judge hinged his judgement on the recorded press interview between the Imo State Commissioner of Police, Okorocha and Senator Osita Izunaso; and a report of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which confirmed that there was no APC ward congress in Imo State on May 5.
But the convener of the Imo State APC Coalition Restoration, Dr. Theodore Ekechi, said they were studying the judgement.
However, a statement by Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, quoted the governor as saying that the judgement had authenticated his sustained claim and that of patriotic leaders of APC in Imo that the congresses did not hold.
