There is outrage in Ideato South council area of Imo State following the PDP’s replacement of the certified winner of the Ideato South House of Assembly primaries, Hon. Chris Ogbu.
Ogbu who polled 20 votes, was replaced with an aspirant, Mrs. Nnenna Aladum, who came last in the said primary election.
He maintained that the act of publishing the name of a loser in a primary that was held at a central location in Imo State with other 39 legislative seats in the PDP primary is criminal, very provocative and a move to throw the PDP in Ideato into crisis.
Already, party stakeholders in the council area have expressed shock and condemned the manipulation of the INEC list by persons with vested interest which they said was targeted at undermining the collective good of people of Ideato nation.
The winner of the primary election, Hon. Ogbu however urged his supporters to remain calm saying he is still the candidate of the party and will bring the criminal conspirators who tinkered the INEC list to justice.
He reassured his supporters that no stone will be left unturned in redressing the injustice and criminality of imposing a failed aspirant on the people of Ideato South against their will as expressed in the outcome of the PDP primary election that returned him winner before the party leadership, security agents and INEC observers.
