Imo State APC supporters clash, Governor Okorocha says clash not serious


Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, says the clash between his supporters and those of a former senator who represented Imo West, Senator Osita Izunaso is nothing serious.

Following the incident which occurred at the venue of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday, the governor noted that it was nothing to be worried about.

MagicFM’s correspondent, Anastasia Uchenna who was at the convention in Abuja reports that Okorocha said disagreements do occur, especially when people perceive injustice or something wrong.

The clash occurred after some delegates from Imo and Delta states engaged themselves in a free-for-all.

This happened when President Muhammadu Buhari was addressing members of the party whom he asked to keep faith with the ruling APC ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Meanwhile, reports have emerged that the dispute was a fallout of the allocation of the APC National Organising Secretary seat to Imo State by the ruling party.

While the governor reportedly favoured Emma Ibediro for the position, party stakeholders in the South-east region went for national officers from the zone to be re-elected.
