While a faction in the party favoured Giadom who was the Deputy Secretary General, others advocated for ailing Senator Abiola Ajumobi, for governor of Oyo State as Acting Chairman.
At the home front in Imo, Trumpeta observed that the fend at the national stage has resurrected the factional warfare ravaging the state chapter of the party where two major camps have resumed battle for who takes over control of party structure in the state.
Those of Okorocha’s lineup, otherwise known as the Rescue Mission camp under “Perfect Alliance” have the state Exco of Imo APC under Dan Nwafor as their favourite, while the Coalition/Camp Hope which has the backing of Governor Hope Uzodinma is Chief Marcon Nlemigbo.
Observation from the social media by our reporter showed Okorocha’s political allies and followers have been celebrating Giadom’s acceptance by President Buhari.
