Imo APC defies Okorocha’s court injunction, re-elects Ekeh as chairman



Mr Hillary Ekeh has been re-elected as Imo APC party Chairman in the just concluded APC state congress in Imo.

The party delegates, who described the congress election as peaceful and successful, also re-elected Deputy Chairman Mr Ugochukwu Nzekwe.

Veloxnews reports that Gov. Rochas Okorocha, who was absent at the congress, had described the election as illegal.

The governor had obtained an injunction from an Owerri high court to stop the congress.

However, the party Chairman Hillary Ekeh countered the claim by saying neither he nor any member of the executive was served the injunction notice.

Speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) after the election, Sen Ifeanyi Araraume described the congress election as peaceful and well-coordinated.

He said there was no fracas or any form of violence during the process and commended the party chairman for his re-election.

Asked if he has any idea of the injunction notice, Araraume said there was nothing like injunction stopping the conduct of the election.

“We the party stakeholders have no idea of any injunction, but even if there is an injunction nobody had been served so our election has to move on”.
