This is coming about after 10 hours, INEC, pasted other governorship names of various political parties, excluding that of APC.
According to source, “Immediately, the court struck out the order by the Okorocha’s faction stopping the name of Senator Uzodimma, from publishing as the candidate of the party.
“The judgement was taken to the National headquarters of INEC, and an order was given that the name of Hope should be pasted immediately.
“When the order came, to INEC in Owerri, the administrative head was not on sit but the legal adviser received the order from the National headquarters and he went on.
“They have just acted not as in their own power but according to the power of the court.”
Recall that Governor Rochas Okorocha has threatened fire and brimstone should the party fail to recognise his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu as the governorship candidate of the party in the state.
