|Imo Governorship Not Family Affair - Oshiomhole Blasts Okorocha by Muttee: 5:18pm On Dec 21, 2018|
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, has condemned nepotism in the government of Imo State.
Oshiomhole, who spoke at the just concluded rally to launch the APC campaign in the state, said the party’s governorship candidate, Sen. Hope Uzodinma, would return Imo to the people and bring an end to government by a single family.
The incumbent governor, Mr Rochas Okorocha, and the state Chairman of the APC, Mr Dan Nwafor, were absent from the rally.
Oshiomhole stated that the days were gone when a governor would look at the faces of his people and say there was no money to do other things besides pay those who were working for the government.
He said, “When you elect Senator Hope, appointment into government will be based on merit, not family connection.
“I’m assuring you that we have a governorship candidate, whose purpose is to develop and bring prosperity to the Igbo young man, the Owerri young woman, the carpenter, the mechanic and, above all, my own comrades, the civil servants of Imo State who don’t know any longer what a payday looks like.
“When we talk of happiness, we will not domesticate it in the hands of a sister. The happiness of the great people of Imo State will be the primary purpose of government under Sen. Hope Uzodinma,” he said.
According to the APC chairman, due process will be the basis for constructing buildings and building roads.
“One contract will not be awarded to three people. If it must be awarded, it will not be awarded to in-laws. It will be awarded to the genuine businessmen and women of Imo State.
“Never again will any of your governors look at your (traditional) leaders and abuse them because democracy is about people.
“Never again shall we govern on the basis of family connections. Whether you know somebody or you don’t, whether you marry from me or I don’t marry from you, that shall not be the basis for winning the next election,” he said.
Oshiomhole assured families with breadwinners and pensioners who had not been paid for six to nine months that “the bailout, which President Muhammadu Buhari had given governors, including the governor of Imo State, and was not used for that purpose, will be retrieved and our pensioners will smile again.”
He added, “Let me also say without fear of contradiction that those who are printing posters and putting President Buhari’s face on it with their face and logo because their face and party are unknown — those ones are fake.
“President Buhari has the APC as his party. He is our presidential candidate. He has adopted Sen. Hope Uzodinma as the governorship candidate.”
Earlier, Uzodinma assured the APC chairman that, at the end of the day, the party would be vindicated.
“We are not going to disappoint the people of Imo and we’ll have victory, five over five. I promise, in the name of the almighty God, it shall never be the same again. The Egyptians you are seeing today, you shall see no more,” he said.

Truth be told ,animals are better than 99% of Nigerian politician . This people are wicked ,heartless ,selfish ,greedy and thieves . They neither have the interest of the people nor that of the party .Can you imagine IMO state governor after spending 8years as the governor want his son in law to succeed him , his son in law to be again as the deputy governor ,so his family will be first and second lady in the state ,he himself want to be senator and imposed other two others as senators too .IMO have never have a governor like this before .So everybody in IMO state should serve your family forever .So this man is saying only his family is fit enough to gover the state other are not .

They sell their people out to their godfathers from other nations (Oduduwa/Arewa) and shortly after those other nations figure out a way to begin to quarrel with them to get them out LOL

I am not comfortable with Oshiomole’s direct attack on Okorocha. No matter the level of disagreement, the campaign message should be against PDP/opposition parties and not against the current APC government in Imo state. Okorocha is a founding member of the party and deserve some respect irrespective of what might have happened. Oshiomole should please be guided in his campaign utterances.

seunmsg:APC scoring own goals since 2015. It is inevitable that the broom will be discarded in Imo State come 2019. Sorry in advance for your loss
|Re: Imo Governorship Not Family Affair - Oshiomhole Blasts Okorocha by Bobonowell(m): 7:28pm On Dec 21, 2018|
is painful how Okoroacha is playing heartless politics with imo state people and democracy ..
|Re: Imo Governorship Not Family Affair - Oshiomhole Blasts Okorocha by seunmsg(m): 8:20pm On Dec 21, 2018|
I have no stake in Imo APC hence, nothing to lose personally. Imo state is for Okorocha, Uzodinma and other party stakeholders to lose.
