Governor Rochas Okorocha; and son-in-law, Uche Nwosu.

The Independent National Electoral Commission on Friday released the list of governorship candidates in Imo State missing out the name of the candidate representing the ruling All Progressives Congress.

The electoral umpire published 67 governorship candidates and their respective running mates at its office in Owerri, the state capital.

A source at the INEC office told our correspondent that there were court orders stopping the Commission from publishing any name as the governorship candidate of the APC in the state.
Uche Nwosu and Senator Hope Uzodinma have been battling, both in court and within the party for who should be its candidate.

While Nwosu was declared the winner of the October 6 APC governorship primary, Uzodinma was pronounced winner of the October 1 primary which allegedly did not hold in the state.
