Posterity Will Judge Oshiomhole, Uzodimma Over Fate Of APC In South East – Okorocha

Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo says the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Adams Oshiomhole, and the party’s governorship candidate, Sen. Hope Uzodimma, are to blame for the inability of the party to win the governorship election.

He said posterity would judge the two for their alleged roles in the election.

In
a release issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Sam Onwuemeodo in
Owerri on Thursday, the governor alleged that Uzodinma worked for
Peoples Democratic Party in the just concluded elections.

He said
Uzodimma was one of the first to celebrate with the PDP Candidate,
Chief Emeka Ihedioha, after he was declared the winner of the election,
citing a video of the two contestants as proof of his guilt.

“We
had maintained that Chief Uzodinma was just a mole in the APC and today,
the governorship election in the state and its outcome have obviously
vindicated us, aside the fact that a video of Chief Uzodinma’s
celebration with Ihedioha has gone viral on the social media.”

He
also alleged that Uzodimma succeeded in the alleged plot by ensuring
only his supporters were made agents of the party, adding that his
target was to destroy APC in the South-East.

“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,” Okorocha said (NAN)
