Imo bye-election: Araraume accuses Uzodinma of working against APC
A former senator, Ifeanyi Araraume, has accused Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, of working against the interest of the All Progressives Congress in the state and in the South-East zone.
Araraume, who is laying claim to the APC ticket as its candidate for the just-concluded Imo North Senatorial Bye-Election, said it was time, the national leadership of the party cautioned Uzodinma.
The ex-lawmaker at a briefing on Sunday alleged that Uzodinma ordered members of the party to work for the Peoples Democratic Party during the bye-election.
According to him, the governor was romancing with the PDP during the bye-election which he said was evident in the kind of people he gave appointments in his administration.
Araraume said Uzodinma did everything to sabotage APC at the bye-election but his (Araraume’s) political sagacity made sure that APC won the election.
He flayed the governor for speaking ill of the November 6 judgment of the Federal High Court, Owerri, which declared him the authentic candidate of APC for the bye-election.
When contacted, the Senior Special Assistant to the Imo State governor on Print Media, Modestus Nwamkpa, told The PUNCH that Araraume was telling cheap lies.
Nwamkpa said the APC had grown in the state and in the South-East since Uzodinma became governor.
He said that the governor worked hard to ensure that APC won the bye-election. Punch
