Governor Akeredolu’s wife chased out of APC secretariat in Imo

Betty Akeredolu, the first lady of Ondo State, who is vying for the All Progressives Congress (APC) nomination for the Imo West senatorial constituency, was booted out from the party headquarters in Imo on May 28.

The Daily Trust said that this happened immediately after the First Lady led her supporters to the party’s secretariat to protest the party’s use of consensus to choose its candidate for the 2023 election.

According to reports, her followers went beserk and demanded the right to vote.

As the police attempted to calm the gathering, journalists and delegates who had also gathered for the exercise fled for their lives.

The incident prompted the police to remove Betty and her followers from the building so they could continue their protest.

The First Lady told reporters at the secretariat’s entrance that it is unfair to enable candidates to campaign before informing them that the party has picked the consensus option.

Betty said;

” I am insisting that we must go by delegate election. I cannot waste time and resources campaigning only to be told that candidates would emerge by consensus. We must vote and if I lose gallantly, I will accept the result.

“Consensus my foot. If men agree to consensus, I won’t agree. After spending my time and money, you are now telling me about consensus and all these while we have been campaigning and nobody talked about consensus.”
