Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State on Wednesday told Governor Nyesom Wike to always think before he talks on political matters.
Uzodinma stated this following Wike’s response to his accusation that he was behind the plot for the removal of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.
According to the Imo governor, Wike should think before commenting on matters concerning the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) he claims to love.
Governor Wike had berated Uzodinma over his allegation that he was among those behind plot to remove Oshiomhole.
Uzodinma however noted that he has no regrets over his comments berating Wike for plotting Oshiomhole removal.
“There is no better way to pin Governor Wike down to the recent crisis rocking the APC and its national chairman than the careless way he spoke against Governor Uzodinma who obviously was echoing what many already know about Wike and his type of politics,” Uzodinma said in a statement through his Chief Press Secretary, Oguwike Nwachukwu, on Wednesday.
“Is it not unfortunate that Governor Wike pretends to have a court injunction on how to speak carelessly, the reason many erstwhile members of the PDP, including founding members, had abandoned the party which is about to collapse on Wike’s head.
“Rather than engage in some kind of introspection on what went wrong with his party, Governor Wike thinks that trivialising serious issues of national and international importance will bring accolades his way.
“If Governor Wike did not have a hand in the Oshiomhole saga, why insult innocent Governor Uzodinma whose only crime was that he brought Wike’s mischief tendencies to the fore for everyone to see?
“Governor Wike pretends to love the judiciary more than anyone else, but the truth is that every opportunity he gets to stand the judiciary on the head he does so with relish.”
