Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state has said that he would not join the issue with the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi.
Telescope.ng reports that he maintained that his business is to market the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in the southeast.
The governor also noted that there are many loyal members of the APC in the southeast.
Uzodinma disclosed this on Tuesday, August 16, during an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today.
He 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 join issue with Peter Obi whom you know is not a member of my party. But I know members of APC are obedient to APC.”
He states that the APC government in the state has done so much, saying he is confident that the reasonable minds in Imo State would vote for APC
He 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.”
