Okorocha to Oshiomhole, Uzodimma: Posterity’ll judge you over APC’s fate in S’East



Okorocha to Oshiomhole, Uzodimma: Posterity’ll judge you over APC’s fate in S’East
  • UPP: Governor paying price for pauperizing Imo

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo has said that the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and the party’s governorship candidate, Senator Hope Uzodimma should be blamed for the party’s inability to win the governorship election in the state.

He said posterity would judge the two for their roles in the election. In a release issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo in Owerri yesterday, the governor accused Uzodinma of working for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the just concluded elections, saying Uzodimma was one of the first to celebrate with the PDP candidate, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, after he was declared winner of the election, citing a video of the two contestants as proof of his guilt. Okorocha said: “We had maintained that Chief Uzodinma was just a mole in the APC and today, the governorship election in the state and its outcome has obviously vindicated us, aside the fact that a video of Chief Uzodinma’s celebration with Ihedioha has gone viral on the social media.

“Chief Uzodinma succeeded through Adams Oshiomhole to ensure that only his supporters were made agents of the party from the list he sent from Abuja to the Independent National Electoral Commission. “Unfortunately, none of Uzodinma’s and Oshiomhole’s approved agents were seen either at the ward, local government or at the state level; they didn’t care about the election and its outcome. “At the end of the day, the APC candidate came fourth. And he has been celebrating with the PDP candidate.

“Their target as it has been shown now is to totally destroy APC in the South- East and in Imo in particular, thereby authenticating the claim in some quarters that it is all about 2023. “We had equally maintained the contention that Imo people would not vote for Uzodinma because they know him very well, but Oshiomhole refused to listen. “He came fourth and never showed that he took part in the election; posterity and history will judge Oshiomhole and Uzodinma over the fate of APC in the South-East, especially in Imo State.”

Meanwhile, Deputy National Chairman, South of the United Progressive Party (UPP), Chief Chris Ejike Uche has said that the humiliation of Governor Rochas Okorocha in the governorship election was the price the governor had to pay for impoverishing the state and destroying critical institutions. This is also as Prof. Francis Dike (SAN) said it would be difficult to sufficiently explain or express the depth of hopelessness Imo people were plunged into in the last eight years under Okorocha. Dike, who is the Chairman of Imo State Elders Advisory Council, said he did not envy the Governor- elect, Chief Emeka Ihedioha who would inherit unprecedented decay and dilapidation Okorocha was leaving behind. “While sympathizing with the incoming governor for the herculean  task ahead, I am positive he can win the hearts and minds of Imo people by gently reversing the injustices of the past. “He should know that Imo people are republican and the knowledge of this is the beginning of wisdom,” Dike said. However, the UPP Deputy National Chairman, Uche said that Okorocha was leaving behind a legacy of bad governance and nothing more. “Rochas Okorocha will be remembered solely for foisting on Imo, the worst kind of maladministration in government. He broke loose and took to unorthodox policies which culminated in the division and pauperization of the state,” Uche said.
