“You Won’t Gain Legitimacy With Lies,” Ihedioha Tackles Uzodinma

The sacked Governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha, has hit back at Governor Hope Uzodinma for attempting to gain legitimacy with lies over the state of affairs of the state.

Ihedioha reacted to Uzodinma’s statement in Abuja last Friday where he made several claims over the Supreme Court’s judgement.

Uzodinma claimed to have provided basic amenities, including pipe-borne water and electricity, as well as payment of all outstanding salaries owed Imo workers, which the former governor could not meet up.

Ihedioha faulted the governor for feeding the state with lies and for his deliberate attempt to fake legitimacy.

“Uzodinma by claiming that time for election petition has elapsed was playing to the gallery.

“He engaged in a failed ambush of the Supreme Court.

“Uzodinma’s claim that he restored water and electricity supply to the Secretariat is another barefaced falsehood.

“The reactivation and reticulation of water in the state was later achieved, leading to clean pipe-borne water running again in parts of Owerri city for the first time since 2011.

“Imo people can testify to these facts,” he said.
