The Imo State chapter of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has expelled Senator Ifeanyi Ararume from their folds over anti-party offence.
John Iwuala, the Caretaker Committee Chairman of the party confirmed the new development to the media on Saturday.
Recall, Ararume represented the party in Imo North between 1999 and 2007, and was also the APGA governorship candidate during the 2019 election in the state.
His expulsion from the party, according to informed sources, was as a result of his decision and public announcement to work with Governor Hope Uzodinma, who is a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“We expelled him in a letter to the national leadership on January 11. We are waiting for the national leadership to ratify the expulsion,” Iwuala said.
But in reaction to the expulsion, Ararume said Iwuala has no legal right to expel him from the party, claiming that he didn’t know the committee chairman.
“John Iwuala is unknown to me.
“He is unknown to APGA and unknown to law..
“ A valid state congress was conducted in Imo and APGA has a duly elected chairman in the state.’’
