Araraume denies supporting PDP candidate – Blueprint Newspapers Limited



A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, has debunked media reports that he has thrown his weight behind the People’s Democratic Party (PDP’s)  candidate in the November 11 Imo governorship election. 

In a statement made available to Blueprint in Abuja, Thursday, signed by his Senior Special Assistant, Legal and Public Affairs, Barrister Uche Anyanwu, Araraume described the report as the handiwork of mischief makers who were bent on disparaging the soaring image of Senator Araraume. 

The statement read in part: “The attention of Senator Ifeanyi Araraume has been drawn to publications making rounds in sections of the media that he has thrown his support behind the PDP governorship candidate for the Imo state governorship election.

“Senator Araraume hereby reiterates unequivocally that he is a bonafide member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and most recently was the Director of Trade and Economic Affairs (South) of the APC presidential campaign council (PCC), and have been fully engaged and in support of all APC activities at the national level.

“He has not made any pronouncements concerning any candidate in the Imo state governorship elections, but reserves the right to endorse or not to endorse any candidate of his choice at the appropriate time, which is within his rights to decide.

“What is paramount to Senator Araraume is the safety of the good people of Imo state, their welfare, the ability to carry out their lawful business without fear of molestation and the effective delivery of the dividends of democracy, which includes preservation of institutions of good governance in Imo state.

“These divisive individuals should be advised to mind their business, focus on their immediate challenges and leave Senator Araraume alone.”
