Senator Achonu Emerges Imo Labour Party Governorship Candidate

Senator Athan Achonu has emerged as the Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate for Imo State.

His victory followed the LP governorship primaries held in Owerri on Saturday.

While announcing the result of the exercise, the returning officer and Abia-State governor-elect Alex Otti said Achonu, popularly known as one arm general, polled 134 votes to beat his closest rival Major General Jack Ogunewe who scored 121.

“I hereby return Athan Achonu as the LP candidate,” he said, noting that the exercise was credible.

Senator Achonu was elected into the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2015 to represent Imo North on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
