Oyebode Joseph
, Nigeria.

The governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has said that Chief Hope Uzodinma, Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, Prince Eze Madumere and few others are not in actual fact fighting him. He said they are only tools in the hands of some big shots in the Country over their 2023 ambition.

Governor Okorocha made the remark when he met with Senior Media Practitioners in the State at the Government House on Tuesday November 27, 2018, regretting that Politicians outside Igboland who want to fight any particular Igbo politician must use fellow Igbos as tools. His words “Hope Uzodinma is not fighting Rochas Okorocha. Neither is Ifeanyi Araraume nor Eze Madumere or Emeka Ihedioha. But they are been used as instruments to fight Rochas because of the 2023 ambition of some big shots in the Country. And that tells the story of the Igbos. We don’t support our own, rather we destroy our own”.

He said “What is happening in Igboland today cannot happen in any other place in Nigeria because Igbos have made themselves Shopping Centres where people can come and shop and buy people to destroy their own. It is not a good omen.”
The governor continued “I want to announce that I am still running for the Senate for Orlu zone and my party is APC. I am going to make the difference. We are also supporting President Muhammadu Buhari for second tenure because he has done well to deserve that. I am supporting Uche Nwosu too because he believes in the State and won’t be going anywhere. Imo needs someone with vision and passion to carry on with the development plans of the State”.

He said “The people of the State joined the All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2015 inspite of the blackmail that trailed the Party in this part of the Country because of the Confidence they have in me and not only as their governor, but as their son. Imo people never joined APC because of any other person in Nigeria, but they joined the Party because of me and nothing has changed in the relationship because they are still all with me.”

The governor noted “Our party that is known for uprightness, justice, fairness and equity which show the image of President Buhari as a man of integrity has been dented by the actions of the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole. What we saw recently in Imo was a clear case of injustice which does not reflect the image of our party. That people who won primaries were denied tickets and people who never contested were given tickets to run for the party, without considering the local effects to the members of the party in Imo State”.

He added “We have been trying to handle this situation and make the best out of it but I want to make it clear for those that are doubting that I am still a member of APC, I have not left APC and do not intend to leave APC. I was the first governor to endorse President Buhari for second term and I brought all my colleagues to do so. President Buhari remains my Candidate and I will support him for his presidential bid”.
