Imo PDP: Uzodimma now begging for votes after introducing harsh polices

BY Ahmad Sahabi


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo says Hope Uzodimma, governor of the state, is now begging residents for votes after introducing harsh policies.

Uzodimma is seeking re-election. He is the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the election billed for November 11.

In a statement, Ikenna Onuoha, spokesperson of Imo PDP, accused Uzodimma of delegating members of the APC to incessantly bombard residents of the state with unsolicited phone calls as he begs for votes.

“The attention of the Peoples Democratic Party Gubernatorial Campaign Council in Imo state has been drawn to a clandestine move by the All Progressive Congress and Hope Uzodinma to legalize vote buying in the state,” the statement reads.


“This time, Uzodinma is said to have delegated members of APC to incessantly bombard Imo people with unsolicited phone calls, begging for votes and promising to financially reward them for each vote cast for APC.

“It is shameful that Uzodinma is going about begging for the votes of Imo people after he flagrantly ignored them and instead, introduced harsh and obnoxious policies that are detrimental to their welfare.

“Our campaign council therefore queries Uzodinma’s morality in soliciting votes from Imo people now that it is clear to him that his political future is in serious danger, having treated the people of the state with disdain and utter disregard.


“The question now is, if Uzodinma and APC are convinced that the election would be a walk-over for them, why then are they going about begging, and spending airtime bombarding the phone numbers of aggrieved Imo people without authorization?

“The PDP (Sam-Jones) Gubernatorial Campaign Council further enjoins Uzodinma and his outgoing APC administration to stop embarrassing themselves by going beggarly, after they had failed to apologize to Imo people for harassing, intimidating and molesting them at no provocation.”
