Ahead of the next few days governorship
election, the governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma has cried out over an alleged election coup, says Governor Rochas Okorocha has perfected plans to unleash mayhem on APC members.
“While we have been busy campaigning across the nook and cranny of the state, Okorocha... is threatening everybody that he will... chase us away..
“I am proud that I delivered my polling unit, ward and local government to President Buhari. But Rochas’ son in-law, Uche Nwosu, who boasted that himself and his boss will give the President one million votes, lost his unit, ward and local government to PDP."
He spoke when 53 groups, including market women in the 27 councils endorsed him for governor.“We are begging Okorocha to allow the people of Imo to elect who will be their governor. I urge security agencies to cut the excesses of the governor, else he will throw this state into chaos due to his ambition, because we will not fold our arms and allow Okorocha steal our votes.
“When a governor starts acting like a rascal it is going to create crisis. We are ready to cast our votes and we are not afraid of anybody. We urge security agencies to be on the alert. We are not worried because I am going to win. We are glad that we have Federal Government forces that will provide security... So our people should go out and cast their votes and we will protect the votes,” he said.
