The immediate past Secretary to the Government of Imo state, Rt. Hon Barr Uche Onyeagucha has stated without any equivocation that Senator Hope Uzodimma is not the legitimate Governor of Imo state.
Hon. Onyeagucha released the bombshell when speaking at the third anniversary of the Owerri zone summit known as ‘Egbu Declaration’ which took place recently at Mayfair hotel and suits Egbu road Owerri.
He clearly described Gov. Hope Uzodimma as a ‘gate crasher’ and imposter who is parading a mandate that does not belong to him.
“Hope Uzodimma is not our Governor, he stole our mandate and we cannot recognize him as the Governor of the State. We shall continue to pray until he return the Mandate he stole. He can never have rest until he relinquishes the mandate he stole from us. If Hope Uzodimma thinks he is powerful let him come out and contest the next Governorship election in the state”.
He urged the people of Owerri zone and other Imolites to remain resolute and not to relent in ensuring that equity and Justice prevail.
Also reacting on the activities of an elder statesman Chief Dr Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Hon Onyeagucha took a swipe on him, describing him as a perpetual betrayer who has continued to betray his people of Owerri zone. He maintained that Chief Iwuanyanwu should be relegated to the background and should be stoped from speaking for the people of Owerri zone. “Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu should stop speaking for us, he can do whatever he likes with Hope Uzodimma but not on behalf of the people of Owerri zone, he is a serial betrayer and has sold us for a penny”
In his keynote address, the former Vice Chancellor of Federal University of Technology Owerri, Prof. Jude Njoku said that the event was aimed at reaffirming the hope , faith and resolve of the people of Owerri to make demand of their legitimate mandate which was stolen.
