In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, the governor disclosed that Uzodinma neither asked verbally nor applied for the use of the stadium.

He said government would not have denied him the use of the Dan Anyiam stadium if he had asked for or applied for it.

According to Okorocha:

"He never applied to use the stadium especially when a press release had been issued days before the flag off of his campaign that the governor had directed that the stadium should be released free to political parties and candidates who would like to use it for their rallies or for other political activities."

Owelle further accused Uzodinma of using the stadium issue to once again blackmail his government and continue to deceive Adams Oshiomole. The governor stated that the APC governorship candidate carefully avoided the use of the stadium because he knew he could not mobilize the crowd needed to fill the stadium.
