Uzodinma Wants To Be Gov To Evade Prosecution – Okorocha
Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the 2019 general election, Senator Hope Uzodinma, is hell bent on becoming a governor because of the immunity it would confer on him against prosecution.
The governor also denied insinuations that he was behind Uzodinma’s travails, saying that the incidents for which Uzodinma was being investigated predated his (Okorocha’s) ascendancy as governor of Imo State.
He said that in saner climes, Uzodinma should have resigned his position in the senate, instead of seeking to be governor.
Okorocha, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, said:
“Chief Hope Uzodinma who is doing all he could to become governor of Imo State in 2019 and who the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has thrown up as the governorship candidate of the Party in Imo does not want to become governor to actually govern the State but to enjoy immunity to enable him escape from the criminal trials he is facing at the moment.
“And these are matters that had happened years before now and they have nothing to do with Rochas Okorocha and even when the governor has no record of witch-hunting in his Political life and in his life generally.
“He is too godly to think evil against anyone.”
