— There was pandemonium on Saturday at Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri, Imo State, when supporters of the state All Progressives Congress’ governorship candidate, Senator Hope Uzodinma, clashed with those of the Action Alliance governorship candidate, Uche Nwosu.
The political tension in the state was further heightened, by the disagreement between the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, and Governor Rochas Okorocha, after the governor boasted that his son-in-law, Nwosu, would win the state governorship election and not Uzodinma.
Dolapo Osinbajo, who represented Aisha at the event, however, told the crowd to vote for Buhari and the APC candidates in the forthcoming elections.
The governor’s comment angered the APC leaders and women who came from the five states of the South-East, forcing them to leave the stadium.
He spoke at the South-East women and youths rally held in Owerri.
