Report gathered that Okorocha said it would be impossible for anyone to vote for Uzodinma, adding that it would be easy for President Muhammadu Buhari to coast home to victory in the forthcoming elections. 

According to the Statement:

“It would require God talking from heaven and telling Imo people, “Chief Hope Uzodinma is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased” before Imo people could consider changing their minds. If not, Imo people know those who cannot be their governor. Chief Uzodinma knows this fact and he should stop using the governor to deceive his sponsors.

“Adams Oshiomhole’s preferred governorship Candidate for All Progressives Congress, APC, Imo State, Chief Hope Uzodinma, has launched repeated media campaign of calumny against Governor Rochas Okorocha and giving the impression that his problem as the gubernatorial Candidate of Imo APC is the governor." 

The governor said he is not the problem of the APC governorship candidate, adding that the latter's problem was self-inflicted. Okorocha stated that Uzodinma has a problem of how to convince the people of Imo state to vote for him in 2019, adding that the candidate has been banned from travelling out over allegation of treasury looting.

“He is in Court over 12.5million dollars Contract. That does not concern Rochas. He is in Court for asset declaration issue. That has also nothing to do with Rochas. 

“Chief Uzodinma is also in court over issuance of Dud Cheque. This matter also has nothing to do with Rochas Okorocha, among other similar cases. It is also not an oversight that the APC candidate has not made his profile available for people to see. 

“Before now, Chief Uzodinma never attended any APC meeting in the State. He has never visited the governor either before or after he was handed over the ticket of the Party. 

"Chief Uzodinma went to the Senate in 2011 through the Court. In 2015, he knew how his victory also came. But this time, it is going to be a different ball game with strong governorship Candidates in AA, APGA, PDP, AP, LP, SDP, etc. Ahmed Gulak style or the 2015 stampede won’t be the case in 2019." 

Reports previously stated that Governor Rochas Okorocha had earlier accused the Imo All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the 2019 elections, Senator Hope Uzodinma, of being a fraudster. In a statement circulated to journalists on Thursday, November 8, by his chief press secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, the governor alleged that Senator Uzodinma was burdened by at least two criminal cases, besides standing on a wealth of unknown means, including issuance of dud cheques.
