for the party waiver after been told that another aspirant has purchased the form before her,. she went further to state that, she waited for the screening process but was never invited by the National office for the screening till the eve of the primaries when she was told by the party’s National publicity Secretary Ifeanyi Mbaeri via WhatsApp message that the waiver she applied for was not successful which she said was not officially declared to her by the party.

Aririgozu, a one time publicity Secretary of APGA, former House of Assembly candidate and a former commissioner in Imo state, said she has experience in governance and has the capability to lead Imo state and wondered why she was been disqualified.
