APGA expels Senator Araraume for anti-party activities

The All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in Imo State, has said that the party has expelled Senator Ifeanyi Araraume for alleged anti-party activities.

The caretaker committee chairman John Iwuala who made this known said that the senator who represented Imo North between 1999 and 2007 and was the APGA governorship candidate during the 2019 election in Imo State was guilty of alleged anti-party activities.

He said, "APGA in Imo State and in the South-East have expelled Senator Ifeanyi Araraume. We expelled him in a letter we wrote to the national leadership on January 11. We are waiting for the national leadership to ratify the expulsion."

Meanwhile, Araraume, reacted to the expel on Monday, said that the caretaker committee chairman had no legal rights to speak for Imo APGA.

"John Iwuala is unknown to me. He is unknown to APGA and unknown to law. A valid state Congress was conducted in Imo State and APGA has a duly elected chairman in Imo State, Araraume said.

"We have said that what we are running in Imo State now is a coalition. APGA, APC, AA, and part of PDP led by Senator Samuel Anyanwu are supporting the APC government of senator Hope Uzodinma."
