The Imo state governor, Hope Uzodinma, has alleged that Igbo leaders in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are at the forefront of a plot to topple the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Governor Uzodinma made the accusation when reacting to the protests by the PDP over the Supreme Court judgment which nullified the election of Emeka Ihedioha, The Sun reports.
The Imo state governor said he has noticed that Igbo leaders were at the forefront of the PDP protests staged in Abuja against the Supreme Court, noting that leaders from other parts of the country did not take part in the demonstrations.
He described the protests against the Supreme Court as a disguise to overthrow the federal government and regretted that Igbo leaders are allowing themselves to be used for such an agenda, thereby endangering the lives of innocent Igbos all over the country.
The protests is a script; a veiled version of Revolution Now agenda, to topple the Federal Government and it is unfortunate that Igbo leaders are wittingly and unwittingly lending themselves to the actualisation of this perfidious agenda, thereby making themselves willing sacrificial lambs and also endangering the lives of innocent Igbo all over the country,” Uzodinma said.
The governor said those behind the protests were carrying out a hidden agenda of discrediting the electoral process in the country.
He said it was shameful that Igbo leaders carried out an unpatriotic act of openly inviting foreign powers to interfere in the internal affairs of the country and urged them not to allow themselves be used to cause disunity in the country.
Meanwhile, the national chairman of the ruling APC, Adams Oshiomhole has said the ousted former governor of Imo, Emeka Ihedioha, should never have been declared the winner of the March 9, 2019 governorship election in the southeast state.
Channels TV reports that Oshiomhole made this statement when he addressed the media shortly after officially presenting the new governor of Imo, Hope Uzodinma to President Muhammadu Buhari in Aso Rock on Friday, January 31.
Oshiomhole said INEC was wrong to declare Ihedioha winner when he did not meet constitutional requirements.
