Imo State Gubernatorial aspirant, Ifeanyi Ararume has debunked rumours that he will be leaving the ruling party, APC.
According to Ararume, “he remains a card-carrying member of the APC.”
Araraume made this known to newsmen through the Director of Contact, and Mobilization of his campaign organization and a former Commissioner of Information in Imo state, Dr. Vitalis Ajumbe.
NIGERIA NEWS gathered that the rumours of his defection to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) sprung up after the party went into crisis.
Reports also reveal that, “Araraume had been in a running battle with Governor Rochas Okorocha over the outcome of the APC congresses held in Imo state early this year and the latter’s insistence on installing his son in-law, Chief Uche Nwosu as governor come 2019.”
In his words, “he has no intention of dumping APC for the opposition PDP, saying he will soon make known his next step.”
According to Ajumbe,”The truth is that Senator Ifeanyi Araraume has not made any statement. What probably people are reading is his body language”.
“Araraume is not somebody who would move to a political party and hide himself. He will make it open to everybody”.
” Let us wait in a matter of days, whether he is going to make pronouncement that he has joined APGA”.
“As far as I know, until he pronounces that he has moved to APGA, he is still a card-carrying member of APC,” he added.
