Following Governor Rochas Okorocha’s outburst over his suspension by the national leadership of All Progressives Congress (APC) last Friday, the party’s governorship candidate in Imo state, Senator Hope Uzodinma, has advised the governor to accept the reality that neither the party nor Imo state is his private estates with which he can do whatever he likes, without consequences.
Reacting to the governor’s outburst over his suspension from the APC by the national working committee (NWC) of the APC for anti-party activities, Uzodimma, in a statement by the director of media and special duties of his campaign organisation, Declan Mbadiwe Emelumba, said the governor should accept that he is the architect of his woes instead of looking for scapegoats in the national chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshimole, and himself.
The statement regretted that Okorocha had always used every slight opportunity to pour insults on Oshimhole and the APC governorship candidate in Imo state, blaming them for his political travails.
“This is the greatest insult anybody can give to Imo people because it’s an outright attempt to make a people with proud Republican heritage slaves in their own state. Unfortunately, because of Okorocha’s uncontrollable greed to own everything in Imo state he has failed to appreciate the gravity of this insult on our people ” Uzodimma said.
According to him it’s this greed that has led him to commit brazen anti party activities for which the national leadership of APC has slammed on him a long overdue and well-deserved suspension, adding that instead of showing remorse he is busy insulting everyone.
Okorocha had in his reaction to his suspension accused Oshiomhole of trying to destroy the APC in the South east as well as giving the APC Imo guber ticket to Uzodimma who he claimed was facing some charges.
But Uzodimma dismissed his allegations as empty noting that even when all the governor’s efforts to tarnish his image had failed, he continued to delude himself with his nonexistent charges against him.
“This governor should grow up and accept responsibilities for his blunders and accept the inevitable consequences that follow his evil political plot against Imo people and the APC,” Uzodimma added.
The statement concluded that it was the same wanton greed that led him into committing the atrocities he committed in the Imo West senatorial election last week wondering who he will blame when the full consequences of his desperate actions come knocking on his door soon
