Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has accused the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in the state, Hope Uzodinma of working for Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, ahead of Saturday’s elections.
Okorocha said Uzodinma and his supporters have been canvassing support for Atiku and PDP candidates “secretly.”
The governor’s claim was contained in a statement signed and released by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, on Tuesday in Owerri, the state capital.
He claimed that the APC governorship candidate has been having political meetings to achieve this aim.
The statement reads partly: “Chief Uzodinma and his motley supporters have openly canvassed support for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the PDP and the party’s candidates for the National Assembly election.
“They have also been working secretly with PDP chieftains in the state for that purpose, claiming that he has decided to toe that line to get back at President Buhari and Governor Rochas Okorocha for their non-support of his candidature.”
