    Electoral Register Fraud: PDP warns Gov Uzodinma against harming Ikenga Ugochinyere

    • Urges Security Agencies to Investigate Imo Governor

    The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State has warned the Imo state governor Hope Uzodinma against carrying out his threat of dealing with Ugochinyere imo, spokesman of the Conference of United Political parties ( CUPP)

    In a statement the party issued through the Imo state PDP publicity secretary Collins Opuruzor, the party said rather than bow his head in shame over the recent discovery of unprecedented voters register fraud in Omuma, his village, the State Governor has proceeded to threaten fire and brimstone upon Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, the Spokesperson of the CUPP and PDP candidate for Ideato Federal Constituency, who unraveled the electoral heist.

    “In a recent outburst, the State Government, through the Commissioner for Information, made statements, which by our verdict, have betrayed the Imo State Government’s intention to attack and possibly eliminate Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere.

    ” Apart from recommending that Ikenga Ugochinyere should be jailed for displaying such patriotism that has never been seen in modern Nigeria, Governor Hope Uzodinma further sought to drag our candidate into the insecurity miasma in Imo State.

    “What is pressing to quickly state is that, by yet again politicizing the horrible security situation in the Imo and attempting to bring our candidate into it, our suspicion is further enriched, that the bloodshed in parts of Imo is willfully left to fester by the Governor so as to profit from it and destroy his perceived political foes.

    “Imo PDP therefore warns that no attack, threat or harassment of Ikenga Ugochinyere by the failed regime of APC in Imo State will be tolerated. Not a single hair shall fall from his head, not a scratch found on his body.

    ” For Imo PDP, it is sheer audacity in criminality for the Governor to still find his voice to issue threats, when by now he is supposed to be telling Nigerians his role in this treasonable offence which seeks to truncate our democracy.

    ” We commend the shrewdness and dexterity brought to bear by our candidate in exposing the monumental electoral malfeasance, and we are deeply elated that Nigerians and lovers of democracy all over the world are in sync with us in our demand for justice to be done in this matter and perpetrators of this sleaze brought to book.

    “Nigerians must rise to defend our democracy. They must no longer sit back and watch Governor Uzodinma sabotage all the efforts made to advance the frontiers of democracy in the country through groundbreaking electoral reforms. What has happened with the compromise of the voters register is pure treason, and it must be known and treated as such.

    ” Our Party calls on security agencies to immediately place the Governor on security watchlist and commence painstaking investigations into his activities, as he has become a clear and present danger to our democracy and national security.

    ” It could be recalled that this Governor had boasted publicly that he came to power in Imo through the backdoor, or what he termed “The Ben Johnson Way”.

    ” Our Party urges Nigerians to resist Uzodinma’s latest contrivances to return to power through the same backdoor. To be sure, some INEC officials and security operatives who are in bed with Uzodinma must be wary and realize they are enabling a man who is determined to destroy the soul of our democracy.

    ” Imo PDP will be addressing a world press conference shortly to make more mind-boggling revelations about the massive voters register compromise in the state.

    “Our charge to INEC in the meantime is to understand that this matter touches on the sanctity, integrity and credibility of our electoral system, and that the world is watching to see how the electoral umpire will clean up the mess”, the statement read
