The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Mr Adams Oshiomhole , has condemned nepotism in the government of Imo State .

Oshiomhole , who spoke at the just concluded rally to launch the APC campaign in the state, said the party’ s governorship candidate, Sen. Hope Uzodinma, would return Imo to the people and bring an end to government by a single family .

The incumbent governor , Mr Rochas Okorocha , and the state Chairman of the APC, Mr Dan Nwafor, were absent from the rally .

Oshiomhole stated that the days were gone when a governor would look at the faces of his people and say there was no money to do other things besides pay those who were working for the government .

He said , “ When you elect Senator Hope, appointment into government will be based on merit, not family connection.

“ I ’ m assuring you that we have a governorship candidate , whose purpose is to develop and bring prosperity to the Igbo young man , the Owerri young woman, the carpenter, the mechanic and , above all , my own comrades , the civil servants of Imo State who don’ t know any longer what a payday looks like .

“ When we talk of happiness, we will not domesticate it in the hands of a sister. The happiness of the great people of Imo State will be the primary purpose of government under Sen. Hope Uzodinma, ” he said .

According to the APC chairman , due process will be the basis for constructing buildings and building roads.

“ One contract will not be awarded to three people . If it must be awarded, it will not be awarded to in- laws. It will be awarded to the genuine businessmen and women of Imo State .

“ Never again will any of your governors look at your ( traditional ) leaders and abuse them because democracy is about people .

“ Never again shall we govern on the basis of family connections. Whether you know somebody or you don’ t , whether you marry from me or I don’ t marry from you , that shall not be the basis for winning the next election , ” he said .

Oshiomhole assured families with breadwinners and pensioners who had not been paid for six to nine months that “ the bailout , which President Muhammadu Buhari had given governors , including the governor of Imo State , and was not used for that purpose , will be retrieved and our pensioners will smile again . ”
He added , “ Let me also say without fear of contradiction that those who are printing posters and putting President Buhari’ s face on it with their face and logo because their face and party are unknown — those ones are fake.

“ President Buhari has the APC as his party. He is our presidential candidate. He has adopted Sen. Hope Uzodinma as the governorship candidate . ”
Earlier, Uzodinma assured the APC chairman that , at the end of the day , the party would be vindicated .

“ We are not going to disappoint the people of Imo and we ’ ll have victory , five over five . I promise , in the name of the almighty God , it shall never be the same again .

The Egyptians you are seeing today, you shall see no more, ” he said .
