All Progressives Grand Alliance, Imo State chapter expels Senator Ifeanyi Araraume


The caretaker committee chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA, in Imo State, John Iwuala, say the party has expelled Senator Ifeanyi Araraume.

Iwuala said the senator who represented Imo North between 1999 and 2007 and was the APGA governorship candidate during the 2019 election in Imo State was guilty of alleged anti-party activities.

Araraume had publicly pledged to work with the governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma, who is a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress.

Araraume had endorsed the APC candidate of the Okigwe North House of representatives rerun election as against the APGA candidate.

The APGA caretaker chairman said that the party in the state and in the South-East zone had expelled the senator. But, Araraume, who spoke to journalists, said the caretaker committee chairman had no legal rights to speak for Imo APGA.

He insisted that he was still in APGA and the caretaker committee chairman had no power to expel him or any member of the party.
