Assembly Polls: Thugs, Ebubeagu You’re Dispatching to Ideato North May Return in Body Bags – Imo PDP Warns Hope Uzodinma
– Says, PDP Has Won Landslide in Ideato North
– Vows, Uzodinma’s Plot to Upturn Results Will Be Vehemently Resisted
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State has accused the Governor of the State, Senator Hope Uzodinma, of dispatching a combined team of thugs and Ebubeagu Militiamen to Ideato North to invade the collation center in Urualla and upturn the victory of the PDP in today’s House of Assembly elections.
To be clear, the plan is to smuggle into the collation center a new wad results that were written in favour of the failed APC last night in Douglas House, Owerri. From the results uploaded on INEC Portal and sent in by our Party’s agnents in all the polling units, PDP has already recorded landslide victory in Ideato North.
Our Party, therefore, warns that any attempt to tamper with this hard-earned victory will be vehemently resisted by our Party faithful and supporters, and indeed the entire people of Ideato North, who have waited for this moment to free themselves from the maelstrom of APC’s ruinous misrule.
Our Party holds that by this action, the regime of Senator Uzodinma has levied war against the people of Ideato North, and reminds the thugs and militiamen to say their last prayers before embarking on such voyage of death, because in whole they are going, but in pieces they may return.
What must be recalled is that both President Mohammadu Buhari and the Inspector General of Police have handed down stern warnings against the use of thugs and/or state-backed security outfits during elections. The people of Ideato North must now stand strong and resist this assault on their democratic right by the godless regime of Senator Uzodinma.
