“We wish to use this medium to inform the party that the stakeholders of the Party in Imo State were invited to a stakeholders meeting to discuss the composition of the Presidential Campaign Council and Campaign Management Council but to our surprise, the Secretary of the Party, Nze Ray Emeana proceeded to read out a list of members of the Presidential Campaign Council and Management Committee Council."

Continuing he said:

“This led to serious disagreement as many of the stakeholders opposed the announcement of the list of members of the Presidential Campaign Council, describing the same as fake and as an imposition, as stakeholders were never consulted. “
