Today, the Imo State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) conducted a successful ward Congress across the state. In a widely participated exercise by party faithfuls, the atmosphere was very peaceful as everyone conducted themselves in an orderly manner devoid of the outcome. Independent reports from various wards indicated an early turn out of party members to their various congress centers. The ward Congress of the APC which held across the nation would produce ward Executives of the party and delegates to the LGA Congress. In what turned out to be efforts in futility, the former Governor Rochas Okorocha had approach an FCT High Court through a proxy, seeking for an interim injunction to the Congress in Imo State however, the Hon. Justice denied the motion which gave the Imo State Chapter of the party a clearance to continue with the Congress. Having been conducted and concluded, the party has set in motion, process and system for the progress of the party ahead of the 2023


The leadership of APC in Nigeria after wild consultations and deliberations set Saturday 31st July 2021 as the date for  ward congresses through out the nation. The Congress in Imo was almost stalled with litigations from expunged members of the party during the last elections, but for the timely intervention of stakeholders of the party in the state.  The embattled former Governor Senator Rochas okorocha, who is yet to revalidate his membership in the party together with his sympathizers having made frantic efforts to frustrate the proceedings of the party towards a fair, just, and  inclusiveness ward congress should be licking his wounds now. The efforts of his charade was grounded when an FCT HIGH COURT dismissed the injunction seeking to halt the congress . Imo APC party faithful vindicated the vision and mandate of Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma whom they said has embarked on an evangelism of the party in the south east already.  Party faithful in their numbers tr


We are once again constrained to call on all well meaning individuals in Anambra and beyond to help prevail on Primate Elijah Ayodele, Leader, INRI Evangelical Church to halt this sudden fixation on Distinguished Senator Andy Uba, the All Progressives Congress (APC), and the politics of Anambra State. We urge him to copy good examples from men of God who understand that one of the most cherished values of Christianity is it's solute neutrality in human politics. It doesn't signify impassivity. It simply acknowledges that rulership comes from God. Therefore, a situation where a so called man of God wakes up at random to make strange permutations in the name of prophesies like he has been doing, particularly in the last few days on Anambra state politics leaves so much to be questioned. Again, the leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Ayodele, in another set of his controversial prophecies painted unflattering image of the forthcoming election in Anambra state


The FCT High Court presided by Hon. Justice Origi has declined to the injunction filed to stop the Congress of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State. It was gathered that Senator Rochas Okorocha, allegedly acting in proxy via one Okay Anikwa, had approach the FCT High Court seeking an injunction to stop the APC Congress slated to begin this Saturday 31st July, 2021. By this judgment, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State has been given clearance to progress with the Congress as scheduled.

Then, as I am also youthful, I will need a woman particularly for this purpose. “It is not just a woman; PDP requires a woman of substance; a woman who is a notable figure in the Anglican Church, because, I am a Catholic. The woman in question m
