Imo Governorship: See What Uzodinma Did In Nwosu’s Home Town




Collect Their Money But, Don’t  Vote For Them – Uzodinma Tell Monarchs In Nwosu’s Home Town

Monarchs from Nkwere Local Government Area of Imo State, the home town of the governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA), Mr. Uche Nwosu have pledged their support to the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Hope Uzodinma.

Naija News reports that Uzodinma is a political opponent to Nwosu who is a preferred governorship candidate of the state governor, Rochas Okorocha.

Speaking on what informed their stand, the traditional rulers led by Eze Uzoho Emmanuel Anuruo of Umuezeanoruo autonomous community said they suspected Nwosu ‘s candidature is an attempt by Governor Rochas Okorocha, to run for a third term in office

The traditional rulers in Nkwere LGA, bared their minds when the campaign train of Senator Uzodinma stormed Nwosu’s home town.

According to Eze Anuruo: “Senator Uzodinma is our choice for governor. We are aware that one of our sons wants to be governor, but we believe it is an attempt by the outgoing governor to get a third term. All this government has done is to undermine the traditional institution and we need somebody like Hope Uzodinma, who has the experience to lead our state”.

Speaking after receiving the blessings of the elders and Ezes from Nkwere, Uzodinma, who vowed to restore the dignity of the traditional institution, lamented that the Governor Okorocha-led administration borrowed N312 billion between 2015 till date, without any visible development.

“As we speak, the courts have garnisheed the accounts of Imo State government; so what has been happening is that the money accruing to us from the Federation Account goes into private pockets. Those in Government House now share our money as if it’s their private funds.

“Today, they are going up and down paying people to vote for them. When they give you money collect it, it is our money, but don’t vote for them. We will recover all they stole and give back to our people. It is a shame Rochas and his family embarked on the primitive acquisition of wealth,” he said.
