Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, on Tuesday, has explained why he would not join issues with Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi,
According to Govermor Uzodinma, his major focus is how to ensure the victory of the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in the South East.
He made this known during an interview with Channels TV’s Politics Today.
Uzodinma said that there are many faithful members of the APC in the South East who are ‘obedient’ to the party.
Uzodinma said, “I am a politician and my party is APC and I have my candidate in the party. And I know we are consulting and speaking to our people to vote for our candidate.
“I am concerned with campaigning for my party. I don’t want to join issues with Peter Obi, whom you know is not a member of my party. But I know members of APC are obedient to APC.”
The governor added, “I am very confident that the reasonable minds in Imo State will vote for my party. In 2021, I came here as a governor, 99% of our major roads were not passable. Today the major economic roads in Imo State have been managed in a very first-class manner that even the opposition party members are commending my effort.
“From 1999 to date, the members of Imo House of Assembly have no place in the state to sit. They were attached to one local government secretariat here in Owerri. The Imo House of Assembly building that was abandoned for many years has just been rehabilitated.”
