Using the direct primary mode, Uzodimma won the election with 63,618 votes.
The governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodimma, has been declared the winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial primaries ahead of the November governorship election. The party’s primary election was held at the Ndubuisi Kanu Square in Owerri, the state capital, on Friday.
The chairman of the Governorship Primary Election Committee, Rear Admiral William Kayoda (retd), declared Uzodimma as the party’s flagbearer for the November 11 exercise. Uzodimma won the election with 63,618 votes after the party adopted the direct primary mode of election.
In his speech, Uzodimma promised to redouble his efforts in tackling insecurity and delivering good governance to the people of the state if re-elected. This victory secures Uzodimma’s spot as the APC’s candidate for the Imo State governorship election, and sets the stage for a competitive race for the position.
