By Ndahi Marama

MAIDUGURI—THE National Chairman of the All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, Chief Edwin Ume-Ezeoke, has warned that nobody would be allowed to impose a candidate of his/her choice on the party, without going through the primary elections as enshrined in the constitution of the party.

The chairman handed down the warning, weekend, when he addressed national executive members of the party, during their National Executive Council, NEC, meeting, which took place at the Multi- purpose Hall, Government House, Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

Chief Ezeoke said that the aim of the meeting was to extensively discuss issues affecting the growth of the party, with a view to seeking possible ways of tackling them in order to enhance the fortune of the party in the coming general elections.

He expressed regret that ANPP, which has been one of the strongest opposition parties in the country since the inception of present democracy in the country, has not only remained as it is, but has continued to go down like the toes of a dog, which he noted will never be tolerated.

He added that the imposition of candidate has been one of the issues affecting the progress of the party.
