The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo state, Hope Uzodinma has asked the state governor, Rocha Okorocha, to hide his face in shame rather than blame him and the national leadership of the party over his failed plot to install his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu as governor.
Okorocha had accused the APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and Uzodimma of being the reason for the party’s defeat at the governorship elections in the state.
Okorocha had further said that “posterity and history will judge Oshiomhole and Uzodinma over the fate of APC in the South-East, especially in Imo.”
However, Uzodinma, in a statement, said Okorocha is finished politically.
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 show 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 apologising to the people of Imo State for the crime against God and humanity he committed.”
