Owerri - All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has asked Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State to apologize to the people of the state over the botched Imo North senatorial rerun election, reports Vanguard.

The election was cancelled on Saturday following protest by members of the All Progressives Congress against the conduct of the election.

The APC members held the staff of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Owerri, hostage and effectively grounded movement in and out of the electoral umpire’s premises.
