Osaro Onaiwu, a founding DG of PDP Governors Forum has rebuked Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma over the latter’s comment on Edo election.
Onaiwu warned the governor to better be ready for Edo-like revolution in Imo. He further cautioned him to desist from comments that can make wolves descend on him.
Uzodinma, who is the Deputy Chairman of the APC National Campaign Council for the just concluded election, made scathing remarks on the outcome of the election which did not favour his party.
A statement from Uzodinma, via his media aide, Oguwike Nwachukwu, alleged irregularities in the election while disclosing that his party would reclaim the contest via the courts.
But in a strong rebuttal, Onaiwu wondered what is wrong with Uzodinma, noting that even the APC-led federal government has attested to the transparency of the election and congratulated the winner and the good people of Edo state.
He stated that though Uzodinma was his friend of many years, he crossed the line of decency with his uncharitable comments on the Edo election.
When asked for his reaction on Uzodinma’s outburst, Onaiwu quipped: “I am disappointed in the comments attributed to Gov. Hope Uzodinma. We should rise above partisan bias and speak the truth always.
“My party, the PDP won this election fair and square and I expect him and others to be humble in defeat.”
Onaiwu said contrary to boastings by the APC that the popular mandate freely given to Governor Obaseki would be reversed through court shenanigans, it is Ize-Iyamu that would have case to answer in court for pretending to be APC’s candidate when he has to legitimacy to do so.
