Frontline politician and chieftain of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Senator Ifeanyi Araraume has said those who have lost control of the APC in Imo State are the ones spreading rumours of his exit.
Reacting to rumours of quitting the party, the senator said there is iota of truth in the report that he intends to quit the APC.
“ Those afraid and worried that they have lost control of the party have resorted to propanganda to discredit me” he told Daily Sun
The senator said he is well rooted in the party.
“They are afraid that I am very strong in the party at the grassroots, state and national levels” he said
Araraume explained that the present government in Imo State does not respect the manifesto of the party and the rule of law,.
“ This government must go. The proper APC government must come on board in Imo State in 2019. We have to fight this government to a standstill” he said
The senator recalled that he is part of the legacy party that became the APC.
“Some of them, such as Governor Rochas Okorocha came into the party alone from APGA, because APGA is still a party. They are worried and jittery” he said
He denied reports that he walked out of the APC stakeholders meeting held in Owerri.
“ It was not true that we walked out of the meeting. What happened was that the National Organizing Secretary Senator Osita Izunaso,was as to catch a flight to Abuja because he was going to Ekiti State to kick off the re validation and registration of membership with national chairman and the entire National Working Committee (NWC)”
“That flight was to leave very early in the morning to Ekiti from Abuja and there was no way he would have met the flight. Bearing in mind that there is no night landing and taking off facility at the Imo Airport, he had to leave early. Infact the representative of the governor, the deputy governor, Eze Madumere, left the same time, alongside every other person who participated in the stakeholders meeting because the meeting was over” he said
