Chronicle of events at the botched Imo governorship debate – IK Ogbonna

Waterford-clock-company-nameBy 7am, reports indicated that FUTO students were being conveyed to the venue of the debate in buses by a PDP stalwart with links to FUTO of recent past.

By 8am, APGA and PDP loyalists clashed in a supremacy battle. The battle led to a minor blood bathe on both sides.

At about 10am, the organizers announced the cancellation of the debate owing to the violence from PDP and APGA THUGS with Capt. Iheanacho moving around the venue with about 20 party loyalists seeking for notice.

Shortly after the announcement, Mr Emeka Ihedioha arrived with dangerously looking men with hands in their pockets obviously hiding weapons and looking defeated, hungry and angry.

Gov. Rochas Okorocha who was on his way to the debate was consequently informed of the fiasco and was no where near the venue but as he rode past the International Convention Centre, supporters and Ndi Imo “forced” him on a road show around the city as a mark of support and solidarity. An indication of their support for APC and rejection of the violence prone opposition parties.

Imo is indeed better. To God be the glory.
