Suit against Imo APC may Suffer setback as Uche Nwosu, Dan Nwafor gets set for Labour Party

There are indications that the court case instituted against the Imo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress APC, by a former Chairman of the party in the state, Mr Daniel Madueke Nwafor, may suffer setback, as pointers reveal that Nwafor and his benefactor, the 2019 Governorship candidate of the Action Alliance AA, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, may be on their way to Labour Party.

This is coming as Uche Nwosu’s political structure across the state have started collapsing into Labour Party as it is rumoured that the son-in-law to former governor Rochas Okorocha, still has his sights set on governing Imo State.

Recall that Nwafor served as an aide to Nwosu while he was the Chief of Staff to former governor Rochas Okorocha.

Nwafor dragged the party to court, seeking to disqualify all the candidates of the party for the 2023 General Elections, as he insists that the primaries were conducted by an illegitimate executive.

Nwafor had been at loggerheads with the Marcon Nlemigbo leadership of the party and later the Dr MacDonald Ebere leadership of the party over who the authentic chairman of the party is.

Despite claims of obtaining a favourable judgement to that effect, Nwafor’s tenure in office has elapsed.

In his reaction to the attempt to disqualify the candidates of the party, Gov Hope Uzodimma had cleared the air, pointing out that the NWC of the party, not the State Executives, carried out the primaries and as such nullifies Nwafor’s claims.

With the perceived move to Labour Party, the suit against the Imo APC may suffer setback and could ultimately be dismissed by the court if Nwafor is proven to be a member of another party.

The emergence of former Anambra State governor, Mr Peter Obi as the flagbearer of Labour Party, has led to a scramble for party slots by politicains who have fallen out of favour in the APC and PDP.

The frosty relationship between former governor Rochas Okorocha and Senator Hope Uzodinma has seem the Orlu Zone Senator scrambling for survival in a party he claimed to have named.

With his disappointing outing at the presidential primaries of the APC, it has become clear that Okorocha has lost political relevance at the Federal and the State levels.
