The candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC) in the just concluded Governorship Election in Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma has described Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha and his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu as being bereft of any electoral value and therefore unfit to cast aspersions on popularity or otherwise of him.
He also accused the two of colluding with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to exclude result of votes cast for the APC from the final votes announced just to rob it of its deserved victory in the governorship and state house of assembly elections.
Uzodinma, in a statement issued yesterday averred that Okorocha and Uche Nwosu were celebrating their failure because their only goal was their failed attempt to destroy APC.
According to him, the statement recently credited to both Okorocha and Nwosu that APC lost because Nwosu was not given the ticket confirmed that the destruction of the party was the primary concern of the outgoing governor and his son-in-law.
Unfortunately for them, the more they tried to destroy APC in the State the more the party became popular with the people, the statement said.
“It is truly pathetic that Okorocah and Nwosu are celebrating their defeat in the polls. Because of their double standards, defeat for APC amounts to victory for them.
This crooked reasoning only goes to confirm what is already in public domain which is that he and his father-in-law set out from the beginning to destroy APC in Imo consequent upon which they colluded with the PDP to exclude the votes cast for the party in the elections, from the final collation” he said.
Uzodinma who described Uche Nwosu as a political infant insisted that he was no match to him in any electoral contest as he had won his senatorial elections back to back while the AA candidate has never won any election in his life and lost the only election he ever contested.
