Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, has accused sponsors of the nationwide protest on Sunday and Monday, of attempting to bring down the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Uzodinma also urged the Federal Government and Security Agencies to investigate the real intention of the sponsors of such protest across the nation
The Governor spoke on Monday, when scores of the supporters of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Imo State, staged a solidarity rally for him, over his victory at the Supreme Court.
According to him, the nationwide protest by the PDP members, is an attempt to overthrow the Buhari-led Federal Government.
“Why are they organising a nationwide protest on an event that happened in Imo? If they did not have ulterior motive to bring down the government, they could have held the rally in Imo State, where the Supreme Court passed a judgement?”
He insisted: “We are one united and indivisible country. We did not challenge the election on the grounds of violence or over-voting, but we asked the court to add our votes, which INEC did not include.”
The Governor urged the people of the State to go about their normal businesses, because “I am in charge, and it is by the grace of God that I am your Governor”.
The State Deputy Chairman, Ugochukwu Nzekwe, while addressing the mammoth crowd, stated that the party members are on a solidarity rally to show that the people of the State are happy with Senator Hope Uzodinma as their new Governor.
