Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has spoken on the threat of Peter Obi and his expanding support base to the chances of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the presidential election, especially in the South East.
Speaking on Tuesday during an interview with Channels TV’s Politics Today, Obi said that he doesn’t want to join issue with the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
He stated that his job is to sell the Presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in the South East.
He noted that there are many loyal 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.”
