A serious sex scandal is presently rocking the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Owerri Zone, as a top member of the zonal exco is being accused of partiality and engaging in amorous relationship with a certain female Imo House of Assembly aspirant, in a bid to give her undue advantage over others.

A frontline aspirant for the Mbaitoli state constituency seat, who is said to hail from Orodo axis, in Mbaitoli LGA of the state, in a recent meeting with stakeholders of the party in the area, complained bitterly, about how a top member of the zonal exco, has been doing everything possible to frustrate the lawful ambitions of most of the male aspirants for the Mbaitoli state constituency seat.

The aggrieved aspirant alleged that “a top and influential member of the party’s zonal exco is presently hobnobbing and engaging in amorous relationship with a particular female House of Assembly aspirant with the aim of giving her an edge over other aspirants for the Mbaitoli state constitutency seat”.

He narrated, how prior to the delegate primary election, the accused top official, frustrated several efforts of male aspirants to get delegate forms, while the forms were easily provided for the female aspirant. “We protested vehemently before the forms that were given to the female aspirant on a platter of gold were made available to us.

The exco member is still not relenting in his desperate effort to foist the lady on the people of Mbaitoli, even when it is obvious to all that the lady in question is unpopular and lacks what it takes to win the election”.

They have therefore threatened to petition the national leadership of the party and mention names of the culprits, if a level playing ground is not provided for all aspirants.
