No more nepotism, Imo governorship not family affair, says Oshiomhole

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, has condemned nepotism in the government of Imo State.

Oshiomhole, who spoke at the just concluded rally to launch the APC campaign in the state, said the party’s governorship candidate, Sen. Hope Uzodinma, would return Imo to the people and bring an end to government by a single family.

“Democracy is about the people and as such we will run an inclusive government, the government of the people, by the people and for the people.

“Never again shall we govern on the basis of family connection. Knowing somebody or not, or marrying from a family or not will no longer matter. Your money will be used to develop Imo,” oshiomhole said.

He said Nigeria needed to produce leaders that would be accepted by the people.

He expressed disappointment over the state government’s refusal to release the stadium booked for the rally.

According to him, it is absurd for a governor who is in the same party with the governorship candidate to deny access to the stadium.

He stressed that it was worrisome that a place built with tax payers’ money was put under lock and key.

“If out of the people’s innocence they elected a man that denied them use of a place that belongs to them, it can only translate to electoral victory.”

While promising that the party would be in the state for another rally, Oshiomole urged the people to come out en mass to vote for Buhari and Uzodinma in the 2019 general elections.
