The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State has congratulated its House of Representatives candidate for Ideato Federal Constituency, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, on his victory at the Federal High Court, Owerri.
The party said the victory is indeed a fatal blow to the conspiracy by the All Progressives Congress, APC in Imo State led by Senator Hope Uzodinma to subdue the Ideato people and usurp political power through the back door in order to continue the underdevelopment of the land.
In a statement signed by the state Publicity Secretary, Collins Opurozor, the PDP rejoiced with the Ideato people and dedicated the court victory to indigenes of the constituency.
While observing that the people of Ideato are determined to end the unacceptable failure of political leadership in the area, the party, maintained that its mission to liberate Ideato from poor misrepresentation has now become unstoppable.
It noted that Senator Uzodinma and his few local collaborators within Ideato are in severe agony in view of the judicial defeat, stressing that the shadowy character they parade as candidate in Ideato is no match to Ikenga Ugochinyere.
The PDP regretted that the APC has resorted to mind-boggling, wicked and anti-people plots starting from voter register compromise to destruction of Ikenga’s billboards, and now to failed lawsuits.
According to the PDP, the APC does not want to win Ideato in order to do anything different from what they have done in the past.
It added that the APC was seeking to continue the mass misery in the land which it created.
It bemoaned a situation whereby the APC government terminated the NEWMAP erosion control project in Urualla thereby exposing five communities in Urualla to the ravages of erosion.
The statement added; “This same APC has kept the entire Ideato in darkness and without electricity for over one decade.
“They have terminated over thirty RAMP rural roads awarded by our party in 2019, and they have also failed to account for about N32.7 billion which has accrued to two LGAs of Ideato as statutory allocations from FAAC.
“It is very heartbreaking that this APC has not dropped one trip of construction sand anywhere in Ideato in the last three years.
“And instead of apologizing to the people and seeking forgiveness and restitution from God, these same people still have the temerity to field a candidate in Ideato.
“It is now clear that the APC is daring, insulting and mocking Ideato people. The people will surely rise and speak eloquently with their votes at the polls.
“Ideato people should find solace in the fact that our party has offered them Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, a man who has earned an unrivaled place in Nigeria for speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves and fighting for those who cannot fight for themselves.
“Ikenga Ugochinyere has a rich track record of dedication, passion, excellence and political will to lead the people out of the wilderness.
“He shall make Ideato great again and restore to the people those years that were consumed by the locusts”.
