The much celebrated picking of a Journalist, Mr Felix Emamode Akugha as a running mate to the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor has hit the rock.
We gathered that Akugha who is the Executive Director (News & Current Affairs) of Africa Independent Television (AIT), DAAR Communications PLC rejected the offer after initially agreeing to take it following criticism that followed the news from his office. Akugha who runs the news department sources within the AIT office has been jusing one of his program to lambast the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
The rejection of Emerhor which has been kept secret after all the media hype by Fred Latimore who is the Director of Media and Publicity is the reason the campaign was stalled, stated a source to us.
Meanwhile another person in Abanum has been picked.
