UZODIMMA NOT PART OF ANY GANG UP TO SCUTTLE APC'S CHOICE FOR SENATE PRESIDENT...SAYS IMO GOVT.
Imo State Government yesterday debunked media reports that Gov Hope Uzodimma was part of the plan of any group to support a Senate president other than the one chosen by the All Progressive Congress (APC).
In a statement issued in Owerri, the State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Hon Declan Emelumba explained that at no time did Uzodimma contemplate working against the choice of APC and the President-elect Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the leadership of the 10th Senate.
According to him, as a loyal party man, the governor will stand firmly behind the choice of any person or persons chosen by the APC and the President-elect to lead the 10th Senate, and will infact work assiduously for their emergence.
He said the governor as a loyal party man would never work against the choices of the party talkless of supporting another candidate.
Hon Emelumba submitted that since Uzodimma joined politics over forty(40) years ago, his reputation and integrity as a loyal party man has remained unassailable.
The commissioner described the author of the story as a mischief maker seeking to destroy the hard earned reputation of the governor.
" Those who know my governor can attest to the fact that he is principled and disciplined. He is also bold and courageous. He doesn't speak from both sides of the mouth. He leaves you in no doubt where he stands. And for the issue at hand, he supports the position of APC all the way" he emphasized.
The commissioner cautioned media practitioners against wild speculations and publication of unconfirmed reports.
He noted that as a man who believes in the supremacy of the party, Uzodimma cannot swim against the people already anointed for those positions.
Said he, "When once the party has decided on an issue, Uzodimma will go with the party. So those involved in this infantile speculations should desist forthwith".
