Abuja - Chief Reagan Ufomba, a factional governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in Abia State has denied allegations that he has stepped down for Alex Otti, who is the party's recognized candidate, PUNCH reports.
Ufomba, who spoke out on the topic during a political rally at Uturu, said that he was the authentic candidate for the party and that he would not be stepping down for any possible reason.
