The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Imo State has defended the state governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma, saying he has deployed his knowledge of the legislature to ensure a robust relationship among the three arms of government in the state.
The party therefore counseled the Peoples Democratic Party PDP to find a lasting solution to its frustration and lamentation instead of accusing the governor of emasculating the three arms of government.
In a statement signed by the Director General, APC Media Centre, Cajetan Duke, the party expressed indignation over the penchant of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP to always pillory the state governor.
Duke said it was clear that the leadership of the PDP has lost track and sense of direction which explains its penchant for name-calling and blame-game.
The APC also pledged to continuously respect the independence of the the legislature and engender peaceful political atmosphere in the state.
The APC said; “We have observed with great concern the penchant with which the leadership of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, drags the name of the governor, His Excellency Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma as well as our great party APC into their political misfortune.
“It is obvious that the leadership of the opposition PDP has completely lost track and sense of direction, hence it’s proclivity to blame games and name calling.
“Contrary to the position of PDP as contained in its misleading and mischievous press statement, Uzodimma as a former lawmaker with an outstanding experience and exposure has continued to use his legislative prowess and acumen to ensure a robust and harmonious relationship between the executive arm of government and its legislative branch.
“As a responsible political party, the All Progressives Congress APC, Imo State chapter, unlike the PDP, will continue to respect the independence of the legislative arm of government and engender peaceful political atmosphere in the state. We will not allow PDP to drag us or our dear governor into their festival of lamentations.
“We will always advise the leadership of PDP to look beyond its mindless attack on the people’s governor for the solution to the current affliction of its party that has seen to the constant dwindling of its political fortune and relevance in Imo State nay Nigeria.”
