Uzodinma’s aide to Araraume: You are responsible for your political woes
Media aide to Hope Uzodinma, Imo state governor, Oguwike Nwachuku has stated that a former senator, Ifeanyi Araraume should not blame his principal for his “political oblivion”.
This was stated by the media aide in reaction to an interview granted by Araraume.
According to the media aide, Nwachuku, Uzodinma’s ” only sin” is his support for Frank Ibezim who is seeking to be senator representing Imo north.
Both Araraume, a former two-term senator, and Ibezim are in court over the candidature of the APC in Imo north senatorial bye-election.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the party as winner of the poll.
The governor’s aide said Araraume is surprised that the APC won the election because he worked against the party’s victory at the poll.
“Our attention has been drawn to a recent pitiable interview on AIT where Senator Godwin Ifeanyi Araraume attempted, but woefully failed to blame Governor Hope Uzodimma for the political oblivion he has recently found himself,” he said.
“We are not surprised that Araraume was talking of anti-party activities because Governor Uzodimma worked hard to deliver Ibezim as the preferred candidate of the APC.
“In contrary, Araraume’s action from the time the APC chose Ibezim to the time of electioneering, deploying all distractive tendencies from the court, suggested he didn’t want the APC to win the election. He is rather surprised the party won.
“Rather than waste his precious time fighting and distracting Governor Uzodimma, Araraume should go into introspection to find out why the Okigwe people have decided to pitch their tent with a younger Ibezim, going forward.
“It does not matter how much energy the Araraumes of the world deploy to instigate protests from the association of pensioners, doctors, teachers and other bodies. That is immaterial.
“What is important is that the government of Governor Hope Uzodimma which is anchored on the 3R mantra – reconstruction, reconciliation and recovery will not be distracted by political opponents who see everything wrong in what Governor Uzodimma’s administration does.
“Truth is that Araraume has been retired from politics by his people of Okigwe and there is no need blaming Governor Uzodinma for it.”
