By Deborah Musa, Abuja

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Imo state chapter, have spoken out against alleged threat by the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, against the Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP, Spokesperson, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, over his alleged statement regarding voter register fraud in Omuma, his village.

Collins Opurozor, Imo State PDP, Publicity Secretary in a statement made available to newsmen on Saturday, stated that the Imo state PDP is surprised at the Governor’s reaction, following Ugochinyere’s revelation of the voter register fraud.

The statement further cautioned the governor, against the alleged threat made at the PDP House of Representative candidate, for Ideato North and Ideato south, federal constituency of the state.

The statement read “The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State is awed that, instead of bowing 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 candidate of our great party 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.

“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. 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”.
