Jimi Agbaje, the governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party,
Imo State APC has declared that Senator Hope Uzodinma, does not belong to the party.
Daniel Nwafor the chairman of the state chapter of the party, in an interview, called on all the security agencies to investigate bribery allegations between the National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, and Senator Uzodinma.
The Imo State Chairman said, “there are a lot of allegations of money changing hands, which I think the security agencies should investigate.”
He was asked about why he did not call Senator Uzodinma to any of the APC meetings and his response was: “I have called a press conference here some time ago and said that Hope Uzodinma is not a member of our party.
“But because the party needed to move forward, we allowed certain things and rules to go.
“Hope Uzodinma we also challenge him now is not a member of this party.
“However, we have to allow certain things to be in the interest of peace in the party.
“I think they are not appreciating the efforts of the state structure of this party.”
He further described Oshiomhole as someone who loves money and can destroy for it as he said that money as exchanged hands that is why he will not obey court order but would disobey and he dissolved the party structure in the state.
He said: “Two weeks ago, the governorship candidate of our party, Sen. Hope Uzodinma in connivance with Adams Oshiomhole requested that the state exco, the LGA and ward executives of the party should be dissolved.
“Sen. Hope Uzodinma said that he could not win elections in the state with the present party structure and requested Adams Oshiomhole to dissolve the party structure.
“At that meeting with candidates, state chairmen and state secretaries I also warned that if he grants the requests of Sen. Uzodinma in dissolving the entire state structure that he will take the Imo APC 15 steps backwards.
“But as usual the National Chairman has already formed an alliance with Sen. Uzodinma, there are a lot of allegations of money changing hands, which I think the security agencies should investigate.
“It was at that meeting he admitted that he was going to dissolve the party structure in Imo state.”
