All Progressives Congress governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom State, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, has threatened to leave the party if the result of Thursday governorship primary election in the state is not cancelled.
Akpanudoedehe said this on Saturday night in Uyo when speaking with newsmen.
According to him, he had laboured to build the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria which later fused into APC, but only for the former secretary to Akwa Ibom State Government, Mr. Umana Umana, to hijack the party and contest an election, less than one week of officially becoming a member.
He alleged that there were no governorship primaries of the party in the state. He said, “No single ballot paper was cast and our party guidelines do not have provision for Option A-4.”
Akpanudoedeje, however, admitted going to the venue of the primary at Uyo Township Stadium.
He stated that officials sent from the party headquarters to conduct the exercise displayed fraudulent activities by delaying the accreditation till evening in order to manipulate the result.
He declared that he would appear before an appeal panel in Uyo on Sunday and show evidence that those that took part in the primary were non-members of APC, but people hired from the PDP to cause trouble.
