...The Trumpeta story of Revolt in APC, is false, mischievous, misleading_ The attention of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Imo State chapter has been drawn to a deliberate falsehood circulated on various media platforms (print and electronic) by an Owerri-based Newspaper, the Trumpeta, deliberately skewed to cause confusion and ill will amongst members of our great party.  Contrary to the claims made in the said newspaper report, the honourable SAs are not planning any revolt against the government and there is no disaffection with the APC in Imo State. The assertion that over 150 SAs have vowed to openly revolt due to unpaid salaries and allowances is entirely false and unfounded. The APC-led government of Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma in Imo State, unarguably maintains a strong commitment to its statutory obligations. As a responsible and responsive political party, we value the contributions of our SAs and recognize their dedication to the party and the state. Our governo


The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) has cautioned its customers against falling victim to fraudsters, stressing that the planned upgrade of STS prepaid meters in its network will be free of charge, and at no cost to customers. This clarification was made today in Enugu, by the Head, Corporate Communications, EEDC, Mr. Emeka Ezeh. According to Ezeh, the warning became necessary because of information received by the company about activities of some unscrupulous elements who are extorting unsuspecting customers in the name of upgrading their meters. He said that customers should not fall prey to these elements, as no customer will be charged a kobo to have his or her meter upgraded. “The process of upgrade will be simply by punching into the meter the Key Change Tokens (KCT), which will be provided to the customers alongside the credit token, when they go to recharge their meters.” What we just did, as a matter of responsibility was to notify our customers of this exerc

Reading through an article written by  one of Ukaegbu's media huncho, Frank Nwaete, I can't help but feel for the man Ukaegbu. It is no longer news that the Imo state chapter of the Labour party will be flagging of campaign soon and several party stakeholders will be coming into Imo state to boost the morale of their party faithfuls. Many of them are being expected, including their presidential candidate Mr Peter Obi.  From the information available on the media space, a faction of the party will be presenting Chief Athan Achonu as their candidate against the ruling of the court. Coming from those screaming "all eyes on Judiciary, this is really amazing! Let me say without fear of contraction, that this is a legal trap for Mr Peter Obi and by extension, the party at the national level. As at today, Ukaegbu remains the candidate of the Labour party, recognized by law and INEC and until there is a new judgement, I don't think it is wise and safe for Peter Obi who seeks r
