Governor Hope Uzodinma on Monday night fired back at the Okigwe Senate APC candidate, and his party rival, Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, asking him to retrace from his “desperate attempt to return to the Senate,” saying he has no moral ground for his bid.
Responding to Ararume’s attack on him the day before, Uzodinma in a statement rebuffed allegations of anti-party activity levelled by the former senator as a man clawing at the straws to pick relevance.
“It is unfortunate that a man who lacks the moral grounds to accuse Gov. Hope Uzodimma is boldly doing so without shame and we therefore urge Ifeanyi Araraume to rescind on his desperate ambition to go back to the Senate and work with Sir. Frank Ibezim for the progress of Okigwe North People,” a statement issued by Hon. (Mrs.) Nneamaka Okafor, the governor’s SA, New and Electronic Media said.
“Sen. Ifeanyi Araraume as a matter of fact should apologize to Gov. Hope Uzodimma for this baseless accusation of anti-party and supporting the PDP as we know that none of them are the truth as it is one of the desperate moves to smear the high priced integrity of Gov. Hope Uzodimma.
“Gov. Hope Uzodimma will continue to be a loyal party man and won’t stop at nothing to see the party win in future elections in the state and the country at large.”
