An alliance of two serving Senators of the All Progressive Congress (APC); two former Senators; the Imo Deputy Governor and other key stakeholders of the party last Saturday, thoroughly overwhelmed Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state and his faction of the party in the Ward Congress of the party.

The governor who watched them forge the alliance and strategize toward upstaging his faction in the congress, took the ‘Allied Forces’ for granted.

Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu, representing Imo North who was Okorocha’s Speaker in his first term is the APC National Convention Committee Secretary and Senator Hope Uzodinma representing Imo West made up of 12 LGAs, who joined the party recently and pitched his tent with the Imo APC ‘Allied Forces’ combined with Senator Osita Izunaso, the National Organizing Secretary of the party and Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, a renowned war horse in party politics in Imo state to scheme Governor Rochas Okorocha out of proceeding during last Saturday’s ward congress.

The group which had Okorocha running from pillar to post trying to make meaning of unfolding events during the congress, for the duration of the exercise stayed a step ahead of the governor on all fronts.

At the end of the day, while the senators were commending party faithful for their support and hopefully waiting for the result of the exercise, Okorocha and his group who had alleged that sensitive congress materials were missing, called for the cancellation of the exercise.

And while the governor held on to the cancellation of the congress, the state chairman of the party, Dr. Hilary Ekeh and 20 LGAs party chairmen endorsed the congress as credible and successful, stressing that it was losers in the election that were spreading the cancellation hoax.
