The 2019 Action Alliance Govenroshp candidate in Imo State, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu has reacted to an alleged involvement in the Abuja Federal High Court lawsuit, instituted by the Reform and Advancement Party (RAP) Governorship candidate, Kingdom Okere, against Governor Hope Uzodimma. Uche Nwosu started that he cannot join hands with the opposition, to deny his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, it’s mandate in the possession of Gov Hope Uzodinma.
A newspaper publication, claimed that Uche Nwosu had ordered his lawyers to joined in the suit, stating that his only interest at the moment, was to unite the APC in the state.
Uche Nwosu stated that he did not play nor support politics of bitterness.
Reacting through an aide who didn’t want to be mentioned, the former Chief of State stated, that he believes that the time for politics is over and it was now time for governance.
He however urged Gov Hope Uzodinma, to be more accommodating and bring the party together.
However, a Federal High Court, in Abuja yesterday, adjourned the suit brought before it by RAP and its governorship candidate Okere Kingdom, till July 20. RAP is also seeking the Court, to restrain Governor Uzodimma from acting as Imo Governor.
RAP is seeking judicial interpretation in a judgment of the Supreme Court of Nigeria, in appeal no: SC/1384/2019, which upheld the decision of both the Court of Appeal and the Federal High Court that stated that Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, was the duly elected/nominated 2019 Imo State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, as well as the Action Alliance.
The Abuja Federal High Court, asked interested parties to file in their necessary processes, in opposition to the motion and also ordered hearing notice on the PDP which was absent.
