Top Igbo socio-cultural group, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo has called the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma ‘a traitor’ over his pro-North position on the 2023 Presidency.

Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma

Uzodinma in a statement credited to him, had ruled out the Igbo presidency project in 2023, claiming that such was not the interest of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Uzodinma’s position has now drawn the wrath of the igbo group which had clamoured for a President from the South East zone of the country.

Ohanaeze also stated that its earlier suspicion have now been confirmed by Uzodinma’s latest statement as the governor had excluded ‘Imo State from being part of the southern Governors resolutions, especially on VAT, Southern Presidency and the signing of anti open-grazing laws.’

A statement issued, Monday by the Secretary-General of the Igbo group, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, described Uzodinma’s position as ’the height of absurdity and lunacy,’ even as it maintained that ‘Ndigbo never mandated Uzodimo to speak on its behalf.’

“The height of absurdity and lunacy. No matter the sycophantic allegiance Uzodinma owes his political emperors, he should learn from chronological antecedents of those Igbos that stood against the genuine interests of Ndigbo in the past and the repercussions that came with it. In his own case, it will be destructive and disastrous.

“Ndigbo never under any fora, mandated Governor Hope Uzodinma to speak on behalf of the Southeast with regards to the 2023 Presidency.

“Uzodinma’s standpoints on 2023 Igbo Presidency is his myopic and personal views not that of Ndi-Imo or Ndigbo at large. He should be ignored, as he is suffering from verbal diarrhea and lacks the locu standi to speak on behalf of the collective bargaining and aspirations of Ndigbo.

“Governor Uzodinma cunningly changed positions of 2023 Igbo Presidency to 2027, when he hoped to be ready for his already dead presidential ambition.

“Our suspicions have been reinforced by the desperate activities to exclude Imo State from being part of the southern Governors resolutions, especially on VAT, Southern Presidency and the signing of anti open-grazing laws.

“Ndigbo are bewildered and we ask- can anything good come out of Governor Hope Uzodinma that will make our people happy except for sounds of fury, deaths, and misery of hopelessness that had encircled Imo State.”

“We are foreseeing hazards ahead if Governor Uzodinma’s continuous pursuit of the ‘fifth columnists’ agenda is not stopped.

“We are still praying for the good personality of Uzodinma to be resurrected once again, as we suspect that his political Emperors are hypnotizing him like they used Chief Femi Fani Kayode to destroy and mastermind the problems of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
