As the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) grapples with leadership crises, former Deputy Speaker of the House of Repre­sentatives, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, has accused the state Governor, Ro­chas Okorocha, a serving Senator, Hope Uzodin­ma of destabilising the party.

Ihedioha, who was the governorship candidate of the party in Imo State in 2015 made the accusa­tion at the weekend dur­ing a PDP programme in Isu Local Government Area of the state.

He accused Senator Uzodimma of collabo­rating with Gov Okoro­cha of destabilising PDP in the state, saying they should stop causing problems in the party.

Ihedioha said, “I don’t just want to be governor. Imo is blessed in agricul­ture, rich in mineral re­sources, human capabili­ties and enterprise. We have returned PDP to the people. Hope Uzodim­ma is a very greedy man. He fought my emergence as the Deputy Speaker of the House of Repre­sentatives. He has col­lected money from the governor to destabilise PDP. We can’t allow bad elements in our party again,”

He stated that he won the 2015 governorship election in the state say­ing, “I believe I won Ro­chas Okorocha in 2015 but INEC announced him the winner and the courts affirmed it. I have no other option than to address Rochas as my governor because I am a law-abiding citizen. But please, people should tell Hope Uzodimma to ac­cept the judgement of the Supreme Court which affirmed the leadership of Ahmed Makarfi and should stop causing problems in PDP”.

The immediate past Deputy Speaker said, “There are people who cannot be my friends. The only thing that con­nect us is simply we are from the same state. They are negative ambas­sadors to our state and they are negative people. They feed fat from crisis”.
