APC Aspirant Dennis Idahosa Rejects Party’s Primary Election Results

Dennis Idahosa, an aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the recently concluded primary election, has expressed dissatisfaction with the results declared by the party’s electoral committee. Despite securing the second position with 6,541 votes, Idahosa, who trailed behind winner Senator Monday Okpebholo with 12,433 votes, has categorically rejected the outcome, labeling it as fictitious.

The primary election, initially conducted on February 17, encountered controversy when three different winners emerged. This led to the cancellation of the results, prompting a rescheduled election on Thursday, February 22, after widespread uproar and condemnation. During the initial election, Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State, who chaired the first election committee, declared Idahosa as the winner with 40,453 votes and Okpebholo as the first runner-up with 100 votes.

However, a parallel election saw Okpebholo declared the winner with over 12,000 votes, while another aspirant, Anamero Dekeri, was also pronounced the winner of the same election. In the subsequent rescheduled election, where Idahosa secured the second position, he rejected the results announced by the election chairman, Governor Bassey Otu of Cross River, citing his dissatisfaction with the outcome.
