The Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has stated that the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the State, Senator Hope Uzodinma should be advised to drop his intention of becoming the governor of the party for now.
Okorocha, also said that Uzodinma should quit politics to enable him attend to the criminal charges against him, added that the lawmaker was desperate to become Governor in order to evade criminal trials.
The Governor stated this in a statement through his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo on Tuesday.
Okorocha said, “Chief Uzodinma should be advised to withdraw from the race and also quit politics to enable him to face these trials, and he can come back to politics if at the end of the trials he is not found guilty.
“Chief Uzodinma is desperate to govern Imo State through the assistance of men like Adams Oshiomhole to evade the criminal trials he is already facing.
“His idea is that once he becomes governor, he would be leveraging the immunity provision to evade these trials.
“This is the man Oshiomhole wants to govern Imo people. If Oshiomhole had asked questions, and if he was keen on APC’s victory in Imo, he would not have gone into any deal with Chief Uzodinma.”
