The legislative unit of the Civil Society Central Coordinating Council has accused Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma of using House of Representatives member, Miriam Onuoha, to work against President Bola Tinubu.
The group speaking through its lawyer, Anderson Achilike urged the governor to prove that he is a party man by putting an end to his activities with Onuoha.
According to the group, despite the decision of the All Progressive Congress (APC) national working committee to micro-zone the Deputy Speakership position to Abia lawmaker, Benjamin Kalu, Uzodinma instead of helping to unite the Igbos towards one just course, is causing division by aiding the ambition of Onuoha.
The group said: “Supreme Court Governor, Uzodinma is part of the brain box behind the G-7 who are disrespecting and causing disunity in the party. Instead of advising Onuoha to jettison her ambition and support her Igbo brother, he’s using her to do more harm than Good. It’s not surprising as the Imo rep member just like her Governor was unjustly installed despite her closest opponent, Obinna Onwubualiri of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), defeating her in the election.
“It’s still unclear what Uzodinma hopes to achieve by going against his party’s choice, but once we uncover it we will definitely not hesitate to let Nigerians know. We urge Uzodinma to put an end to his anti-party activities, stop meddling in Nass politics and support APC’s consensus candidate, Hon. Benjamin Kalu as the next Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives.”
