“ We had maintained that Chief Uzodinma was just a mole in the APC and today , the governorship election in the state and its outcome have obviously vindicated us , aside from the fact that a video of Chief Uzodinma ’ s celebration with Ihedioha has gone viral on the social media . ”

He also alleged that Uzodimma succeeded in the alleged plot by ensuring only his supporters were made agents of the party , adding that his target was to destroy APC in the South – East .

“ Chief Uzodinma succeeded through Adams Oshiomhole to ensure that only his supporters were made agents of the party , from the list he sent from Abuja to the Independent National Electoral Commission .

“ Unfortunately , none of Uzodinma ’ s and Oshiomhole ’ s approved agents were seen either at the ward , local government or at the state level ; they didn ’ t care about the election and its outcome.

“ At the end of the day , the APC candidate came fourth . And he has been celebrating with the PDP candidate. ”

“ Their target as it has been shown now is to totally destroy APC in the South – East and in Imo in particular, thereby authenticating the claim in some quarters that it is all about 2023 .

“ We had equally maintained the contention that Imo people would not vote for Uzodinma because they know him very well , but Oshiomhole refused to listen .

“ He came fourth and never showed that he took part in the election ; posterity and history will Judge Oshiomhole and Uzodinma over the fate of APC in the South- East , especially in Imo State , ” Okorocha said . —
