The African Democratic Congress (ADC) on Tuesday said the Imo State Charter of Equity by Governor Hope Uzodimma is not only satanic, malicious and deceitful but unconstitutional and unacceptable to the people of the state.
ADC while describing the charter as a kite to hoodwink the Imo North and Imo East Senatorial Districts to support his second bid, said it is the constitutional right of any adult individual of Imo to aspire for an elective position at any election season regardless of their local government area of origin.
The opposition party made the remarks in a statement signed by the party National Vice Chairman South East, Chilos Godsent and made available to DAILY POST in Owerri, Imo State.
Recall that Governor Hope Uzodimma earlier promised that the government under his watch would religiously help to implement the recent Imo Charter of Equity as proposed and endorsed by the Imo State Council of Elders at its first quarterly meeting held recently.
Reacting to Uzodinma’s assurance when he received in the audience, a delegation of the Imo Elders Council led by the Chairman, HRM Eze (Dr.) Cletus Ilomuanya, the ADC said, ” The African Democratic Congress (ADC) wishes to inform the Imolites that the above narrative is not only wicked, malicious, and satanic but unconstitutional and unacceptable to the good people of Imo State.
“If you cast our minds back, we should remember that the former Governor of Imo State Chief Ikedi Ohakim used that satanic mantra to gain a second term bid in 2011 but failed because it was unconstitutional and unacceptable by Imolites.
“Given the above, it is the constitutional right of any adult individual of Imo State resident to aspire for the elective position at any election season regardless of the Local Government Area of the origin or Senatorial Districts.
“One thing that is very obvious is that the good people of Imo State are fed up with insecurity, political rascality, and economic difficulties that have characterized the present All Progressives Congress (APC) led government in Imo State and therefore is determined to send Governor Hope Uzodimma packing by 11th November 2023 through the Rainbow Alliance (RA).
“We, therefore advise Governor Hope Uzodimma to stop wasting the resources of Imo State in stage-managed ceremonies purported to be admitting failed politicians from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) as those stock of politicians will only be a huge political and economic liability for him against the forthcoming Ballot Revolution of 11th November 2023 in Imo State spearheaded by the African Democratic Congress (ADC) and their allies in the Rainbow Alliance RA…
“Finally, we call on Imolites to disregard the malicious kite called Imo State Charter of Equity sponsored by Governor Hope Uzodimma and his political allies as its primary aim is to deceive gullible Imo politicians, youths and women in the forthcoming 11th November 2023 Ballot Revolution in Imo State.
“The Imo State people will not forget in a hurry the political rascality and robbery committed against the people of Imo State on 18th March 2023 by the APC-led government of Imo State.”
