Gradually, Imo State Chapter of the APC Is taking over the opposition seat which ordinarily is meant for the PDP amongst other opposition parties in the State.
Two months after the assumption of office by Uzodinma, the APC members particularly those loyal to senator Okorocha have not stopped to engage Uzodinma on one media battle and the other, an act which political Analysts describe as party fighting itself even, when it is in the Government.
Notable persons in the said media war include the factional State publicity secretary of the APC, FCC Jones, the former chief press Secretary to senator Okorocha, Mr. Sam Onwuemedo amongst others
A few days ago, fcc Jones criticized Uzodinma’s style of administration.
He accused Uzodinma of destroying the APC which he was not part of its formation both in Imo and Nigeria.
On the other side of the coin, Mr. Sam Onwuemedo had in his Article titled IMO: Gov Uzodinma Raising Alarm, causing Tension and heating the polity on his own.
In the said article which was published in both print media and social Media, Onwuemedo who is presently the media Adviser to senator Okorocha accused Uzodinma of unnecessarily heating up the polity all to accrue peoples hatred against former Governor Okorocha.
Onwuemedo in the said write up accused Uzodinma of lying against Okorocha where he informed Imo people that Okorocha demanded from him to disband the ongoing probe panel constituted by immediate former Governor of Imo State, Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha amongst other allegations.
The factional State chairman of the APC, Dan Nwafor is also not exempted from this.
Although Nwafor has chosen the path of advice in making his interest known to the Governor.
on several occasions, Nwafor has always advised Uzodinma to toe the path of law in his dealings with the party’s structure particularly the Chairmanship seat of the party in the state.
However, mouths have not stopped to wag as the APC now appears to be leading in the opposition against itself.
Speaking with Lead, one of the chieftains of the PDP in Imo revealed that APC has reduced the burden of opposition for the PDP in Imo pointing out that such would make it easier for Imo people to understand agree with the PDP that APC has no plans for Imo people.
He further said that with the early battle of the party against itself, that it will be easy for the PDP to take over the reigns of power in 2023.
