- Senator Uzodinma, the governorship candidate of the APC in Imo state, has been described as shameless
- The attack on the APC candidate came from Governor Okorocha
- Okorocha said Uzodinma has confirmed that he was only used as tool to destroy Imo APC
As the division in Imo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) continues to widen, Governor Rochas Okorocha, has on Sunday, May 26, took a swipe at Senator Hope Uzodinma, the governorship candidate of the party in the last general election.
Okorocha described Uzodinma as a politician who is bent on destroying APC in the state.
According to him, Uzodinma who is also the senator representing Imo West senatorial zone can do worst things to curry favour if given the opportunity.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by the chief press secretary to the governor, Sam Onwuemeodo.
“Within one week, Chief Hope Uzodinma, the governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), in Imo state, has had series of interviews in almost all the national newspapers. And his target in all the interviews was Governor Rochas Okorocha. He has also invaded the social media with his insults on the governor.
“Interestingly enough, the kind of courage and boldness Chief Uzodinma displayed or exercised in all his media outings against Governor Okorocha only showed that he has no shame. And he could do worst things if he has the opportunity," he said.
According to the statement, Chief Uzodinma contested the governorship election in the state with the ticket of APC and he could not win in his own Oru East local government.
"He could not win in any of the 27 LGAs in the state, and never came second or third in all the LGAs but only came fourth and he has the audacity to be granting interviews and talking balderdash.
“He has only confirmed that he was only used as tool to destroy Imo APC. And they have promised him Ministerial appointment and that is the reason behind his current media Campaigns and to be listened to, he has to be insulting Governor Rochas Okorocha."
According to the governor, Uzodinma could not even produce one House of Assembly member. He boasted that his son-in-law, Ugwumba Nwosu produced about eleven House of Assembly members, two Federal House of Representatives members and one senator for Okigwe zone on the platform of Action Alliance, (AA).
He added that all those who won election on the tickets of APC are all Governor Okorocha’s men.
