The dust over the 2019 Imo governorship election is yet to settle as Rochas Okorocha, the outgoing Governor of the state, and Senator Hope Uzodinma, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) continue to trade blames over the party’s loss at the poll. Senator Hope Uzodinma has now come out to say that Governor Rochas Okorocha should hide his face in shame rather than blaming him and the National leadership of the party for his failed plot to install his son in-law as governor of Imo State.
Uzodinma who was reacting to the comment by governor Okorocha that the APC failed to win the Imo governorship election due to the candidacy of Uzodinma, reminded the governor that even as” a sitting governor he failed to win a senatorial election and got a Returning Officer to announce him winner under duress. He said, “I thought by now Okorocha should be hiding his face in shame after he lost his bid to install his son in-law and win his senatorial election. Despite all the billions he spent to stop me and the APC in the state from the results from the polling units I won the election and we will prove it.
“But Okorocha has lost his deposit and he is finished politically. He is an expert in running people down but God has punished him today. This same man worked against the APC and he has the gut to speak about others. I challenge Okorocha for a walk in the streets of Owerri if Imo people will not stone him. Thank God all his conspiracy against us has ended and he has buried himself politically. I expect by now he should be apologizing to the people of Imo State for the crime against God and humanity he committed. I will reclaim my mandate which Okorocha and Ihedioha stole last weekend and then I will have something to tell Okorocha.”
