In Imo, Governor Akeredolu's wife was chased out of the APC secretariat.


Betty Akeredolu, the First Lady of Ondo State, was chased out of the All Progressives Congress (APC) secretariat in Imo on Saturday, May 28. She is running for the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket for Imo West senatorial district.

The First Lady, who is from Imo state, accompanied her followers to the party's secretariat to oppose the consensus option selected by the party in choosing its candidate for the 2023 election, according to Daily Trust.

Her fans were said to have gone insane, insisting that they be allowed to vote. As police attempted to manage the gathering, a rush ensued, with both media and delegates who had also gathered for the exercise fleeing for their lives.

The cops were forced to chase Betty and her followers out of the building so they could continue their demonstration.

The First Lady told journalists outside the secretariat gate that it is unfair to allow hopefuls to campaign only to be told that the party had chosen the consensus option.

Betty stated,

" I am adamant that we must elect delegates by delegate election. I can't afford to spend time and money campaigning only to be told that the candidates will be chosen by consensus. We must vote, and if I valiantly lose, I will respect the outcome." My foot is in agreement. I will not agree to a consensus if males agree to it. You're now telling me about consensus after investing my time and money, and all this time we've been campaigning and no one has mentioned consensus."
