The Imo State Gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Hope Uzodinma has said that “accident” awaits both the state governor, Rochas Okorocha and his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu in the forthcoming election.
Uzodinma also accused Okorocha of reducing traditional rulers in the state to pupils as they can no longer speak as royal fathers due to intimidation and harassment from Okorocha’s government.
He disclosed this yesterday when he met with traditional rulers in Ihitte Uboma and Obowo area of the state.
He said: “The dignity of our royal fathers have been reduced to nothing by Okorocha.
“I will restore that dignity because I will not join Rochas to enjoy the accident that awaits him at the polls as regards his third term ambition through his son in-law. I will rule with the fear of God.
“I feel so ashamed that majority of the traditional rulers I have visited, stay in an uncompleted building while Rochas and his family stay in different mansions in Owerri and Abuja. Rochas and Uche Nwosu owns more than half of the luxury properties in Owerri today.
“Yet they refused to allow our traditional rulers enjoy peace. They order them to Owerri even at midnight, Okorocha turned them to pupils. It is sad because these people are supposed to be the custodians of our customs and traditions”.
H also promised to restore all “that we have lost under Rochas. This is a fight between the poor masses of Imo and the Billionaire Rochas Family. You can imagine a boy who has not worked anywhere in his life apart from being a Personal Assistant to Rochas but today he owns choice properties all over the world.”
