Imo State APC gubernatorial candidate, Senator Hope Uzodinma has reacted to his suspension by APC in the state, calling it an exercise in futility.
This was contained in a statement signed by his spokesman, Hussaini Bukar, and made available to Today’s Echo.
Uzodinma, has been at loggerheads with incumbent Governor Rochas Okorocha over the control of the APC in Imo State. He emerged the party’s gubernatorial candidate at the expense of Okorocha who wanted his son-in-law.
According to Bukar, “the purported suspension of the APC governorship candidate is an exercise in futility and therefore void and of no effect whatsoever. There is only one APC in Imo State under the chairmanship of Prince Marcellus Nlemeigbo.
“That is the party known at the headquarters in Abuja. There’s no APC faction in Imo State. So you cannot act from a void.”
“Okorocha and his infantile boys brigade can deluded themselves to high havens but they cannot change the facts They are not members of APC and therefore, as far as APC is concerned, cannot act from a void because they don’t belong to APC. So the so called suspension or whatever of anybody by the Okorocha gang is of no effect because it’s void and none existent.”
