A front line gubernatorial aspirant on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Imo State, Engr Chuks Ololo has described the cancelled party’s guber primaries as embarrassing and shameful, saying it is a bad precedence.
Ololo, who made the disclosure while addressing newsmen in Owerri, the Imo State capital, said, “I don’t believe the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) had anything to do with it, because am wondering how election result sheets in the custody of the Police command surface outside. If it is true, then the credibility of the police is called to question”, Ololo said.
The former Deputy Chief of Staff to , who is married to the Governor Okorocha’s younger sister and Commissioner for Happiness and Purpose Fulfilment in Imo State said there is so much falsehood flying around saying
“Alhaji Ali Gulak needs to come clean and exonerate himself from the allegations levelled against him, else it will be assumed he did. And I appeal that we should ignore all the distractions and hooliganism that can bring destruction in our State”, he said.
According to the guber hopeful, Imo State needs someone who can help deliver the State saying “Imo State is a factor in South east, so we need someone who can build people and not just infrastructure. Am saying let the best emerge, and I am willing to be that person”.
Reacting to the Governor’s adoption of another in-law, Ololo said, “I respect the Governor for making his choice and not confused on his preferred candidate. He has a candidate and that for me is upright. Imo State governorship is not a family issue but again you cannot ignore the fact that the Governor is my brother in-law, I am married to his younger sister”, Ololo maintained.
