Guber: I Am The Reason Uzodinma Is Always In Abuja – Achonu

Listen to article

The candidate of the Labour Party in the November 11 Imo governorship election, Senator Athan Achonu, has alleged that ever since he joined the gubernatorial race that Governor Hope Uzodimma has been frequenting Abuja in search of rescue.

This is even as he has stated that it is the turn of Okigwe zone to produce the next governor for the state, noting that prominent Okigwe sons like Chief Tony Chukwu and erstwhile governor, Dr Ikedi Ohakim, who are backing the re-election of Hope Uzodimma based on the convoluted Imo Charter of Equity are doing so to please Governor Uzodimma because he had rescued them from the mess they had found themselves in recent times.

Senator Achonu who stated this at a campaign rally in Ehime Mbano council, said: “I am not here to campaign. But, I am here to tell you people that I am already the governor, and that is why Governor Hope Uzodimma no longer sleeps. Everyday he runs to Abuja looking for help because he knows that I will flush him out of Douglas House on November 11. Those our brothers (Tony Chukwu and Ikedi Ohakim), who are supporting Governor Uzodimma on their own version of the Charter of Equity, please forgive them because the governor is holding them to ransom even if they know that it is the turn of Okigwe zone.  But when I become the governor I will free them. They know what I am talking about.’

He added: “Tony Chukwu and Ikedi Ohakim never supported my senatorial ambition, but I became the senator of Okigwe zone. I am happy that Imo people have backed my bid to take Imo back from the hands of those who have destroyed the state. The governor cannot even visit his own village but his people gave me a rousing welcome last Tuesday, when I went there to campaign.”

The LP candidate enjoined the large crowd to come out on the 11 November to cast their votes and then wait until the results are declared and that they should not be intimidated by anybody because the state belongs to them.

Earlier, state chairman of the Imo LP, Calistus Ihejiagwa, who welcomed members of the APC and ADC into the fold of the party urged the youths to protect their future by voting for the LP.
