Gang-up against Imo governor-elect, Ihedioha, will fail – Group

President of the National Council for Unity Government (NCUG), Chief Perry Opara, has condemned those that had initiated suits against Imo State Governor-elect, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, describing them as enemies of the state.
Opara, who is also the National Chairman of National Unity Party (NUP) and member of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), described Ihedioha’s election as not only divine but a process that would liberate the people of the state.
Briefing journalists in Abuja, Opara did not only condemn purported litigation by 47 political parties against Ihedioha as the winner of the governorship election held on March 9 in Imo State, but said that Imo people through their votes had asked Ihedioha to liberate them from the shackles of bad governance and ineptitude.
He said: “At the announcement of Ihedioha as the winner of the governorship election, Imo people went agog and jubilation rented air. Weeks after the result was announced, there are still jubilations in Imo state. Men, women and youths are happy to say bye bye to family business.
“lmo State is not a limited liability company owned and run by one family.
“Ihedioha is a patriot and a nationalist. He has capacity and national exposure. He has a blueprint to develop all parts of Imo State. He has assured us that all parts of Imo State will receive even distribution of amenities and infrastructure. Ihedioha’s administration will be likened to that of Mbakwe, Jakande and Wike of Rivers State.
“Ihedioha is the first Governor-elect in Nigeria to openly welcome all-inclusive government even before he is sworn in. From day one, Ihedioha will kick-start his good governance programmes in Imo State.
“Those parties in court are not true sons of Imo State. They are those that are confused and have gaseous ideas about their importance in the scheme of things. “Every right thinking Imo man is happy and wants change. Retrogressive people will never see anything good out of Israel.”
