The Imo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has mocked the state Governor, Hope Uzodinma reminding him that there would be no 388 fictitious polling units to manipulate in the forthcoming governorship polls.
Reacting to a statement credited to Governor Uzodimma during a church service that it was God that installed him, the opposition party reminded the governor that he emerged through the most scandalous judicial judgment ever witnessed in the annals of the nation’s political history.
The PDP also pointed out that following the judicial travesty that Justice Nweze of the Supreme had cried out that the decision of the Supreme Court to create and impose a governor on Imo State would continue to haunt Nigeria’s electoral jurisprudence forever, noting that till date, Imo has continued to be mentioned whenever judicial travesty in Nigeria is discussed.
The statement by the state Publicity Secretary, Mr. Collins Opurozor read: ‘Even though we know Senator Uzodinma to be sorely deficient in morality, sincerity, and integrity, we had at least expected him to pretend to respect God by not spewing barefaced lies and blasphemy against the Almighty God right on His Holy altar. But he has once again proven that leopard cannot change its spots.
‘To be sure, Senator Uzodimma was declared winner of an election he barely participated in and deservedly came a distant fourth position.
‘He rode to power through the most satanic conspiracy enforced by the worst judicial fraud in the history of Nigeria. And wherever the forces of darkness reign, there is always blood, there is fire, there is weeping and there is misery. That is the case today in Imo State. It is the character of Satan to give with one hand and take with the other hand.”
‘Our party recalls that in the aftermath of Uzodimma’s infamous judicial victory, Justice Nweze of the Supreme had cried out, that the decision of the Supreme Court to create and impose a governor on Imo State would continue to haunt Nigeria’s electoral jurisprudence forever. Till date, Imo has continued to be remembered whenever judicial travesty in Nigeria is discussed.
‘Justice Nweze also noted that Uzodimma, during the election tribunal, admitted that he hijacked the result sheets from the electoral umpire officials and completed the result sheets by himself. He concocted results from 388 nonexistent polling units without indicating the votes polled by other political parties nor the number of accredited votes. Nweze regretted that without evidence of meeting other constitutional provisions, the court misled itself into declaring Uzodinma as winner.
‘As a Party, we are duty-bound to remind Uzodimma that the God he mocked with his statement is not an author of fraud, criminality and injustice. The fraud that brought him to power turned Imo into a killing terrace, a field of agony, and a land of lack, deprivation, and hopelessness. He cannot claim to have been installed by God when under his watch Imo has become a city of bloodshed and has plummeted in all indices of good life and good governance.
‘This is not God’s desire for His people in Imo State. God is peace. He is also love and life. He is the ultimate giver of joy. But Imo today occupies the top positions in all the indices of social strife and misery in Nigeria.
‘Imolites are aware that their covenant with God to reestablish a PDP-led administration in the State under Senator Samuel Anyanwu, which will wipe away tears, heal all wounds, offer succour to the masses, behead the monster of insecurity, make the land yield again, bring back those who have fled because of killings and make Imo safe again shall come to fruition on November 11, 2023. God never fails.
