I don’t want to join issues with Peter Obi – Uzodimma


The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodimma, says he will not join issue with the Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, stating that APC members are obedient to the ruling party.

Uzodimma spoke on Tuesday in an interview with Channels Television.

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.

When asked how many of the five south-east states he can deliver for the APC in 2023, “the Imo governor said the party will market its candidates to the people when the campaign starts in September.

According to him, “I’m very confident that reasonable minds in Imo state would vote for my party. Let me start by 2020 when I came here as the governor; 95 percent 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 members of the opposition party are commending my effort.

“From 1999 till date, members of Imo state house of assembly had no place they stay to sit. They were attached to a local secretariat in Owerri.

“The Imo state house of assembly building that was abandoned thirty-something years ago has just been rehabilitated.

“There is no member of the house of assembly who will go into that place and come out, and tomorrow, if there is an election, will not vote for APC,” he said.
